Best Negroni Recipes for the Summer
RealClearLife rounded up some recipes in honor of Negroni Week, June 6-12
When it comes to cocktails, the simpler the better—at least when you’re mixing it yourself. The Negroni is one of the easiest drinks to make, with just three ingredients: gin, vermouth, and Campari. Despite its simplicity, the drink has a classic air of sophistication—James Bond (in the book series) has even been known to drink Negronis and Americanos, a variation made with club soda. In honor of Negroni Week, a worldwide event involving 4,566 bars and restaurants, RealClearLife is breaking down the best Negroni recipes out there.
