I am sure some Negroni purists will be reaching for a vomit bag when they see this, but give me a second, this really works, but only with these exact ingredients.
It all started when a friend brought me this fabulous Amaro from Sicily, Amaro dell’Etna, by Agrósan.
It has beautiful clean and vibrant flavors that remind me of authentic root beer. I just had to try it.
I used 2 oz Saranac root beer, 2 oz Cinzano 1757 Vermouth (their high end stuff that I will be reviewing soon) and 1 1/3 oz of Amaro dell’Etna.
Really delicious over ice.
No it is all in the ingredients, I would not try this with some crappy commercial root beer, made with high fructose corns syrup. Nor can you skimp on the vermouth, lastly I don't know that this would work with other amaro.
