This modern classic is a lighter, more drinkable variation of the Negroni, which uses clear spirits to obtain a beautiful, translucent cocktail. While it might not have the same bitter kick as its red-hued cousin, it yields a drink that is more accessible to non-Campari drinkers. Its softly bitter flavor will ease newbies into the cocktail and change the mind of many Negroni haters.
- 1.5 oz London Dry Gin
- 0.75 oz Cocchi Americano
- 0.75 oz Salers Aperitif
- Lemon Twist
Add the gin, Cocchi and Suze to a mixing glass with ice. Stir.
Using a julep strainer, strain the cocktail into a rocks glass. Add cubed ice to the glass and garnish with a swath of lemon peel.
