Bearing the iconic name that is prodigiously symbolic of fine Italian cuisine and cocktails. Think Harry's Bar. This had better be good. We were on our way home from Manhattan to Garrison, New York and had some time before the next train.
We tried to imbibe at Campbell Apartment, in Grand Central, but it was too crowded and noisy. So we wondered across the hall to Ciprirni Dolci.
Of course I ordered a Negroni hoping it would be worthy of the Cipriani name. It was.
Simply executed in the classic recipe of:
1 1/2 ox Tanqueray Gin
1 1/2 oz Carpano Antica Formula Vermouth
and as you would expect 1 1/2 oz Campari
Gently stirred served on the rocks with an orange slice. Perfect!
