Another delightful concoction from renaissance woman, Nell Conway, master of all flavors liquorious, wine, beer spirits and the foods that adorn them. This Friday, February the 24th 2017 creation she calls the "TGIF" for what better way to close the week than with a delicious soothing cocktail.
1.5 oz Gin - Ford London Dry, chosen with the guidance of the illustrious UK bar master, brand ambassador, Simon Ford, who created this gin with Thames Distillers, as a "Bartender's Gin" made for mixing, and for that it is perfect.
.75 oz Vermouth - The exciting Contratto Rosso with all its luscious flavors as good as ever after 150 years.
.75 oz Amaro - Aperol also an Italian great with flavors to entice and excite the palate.
With a dash orange bitters and squeeze fresh orange
The smaller portions of vermouth and amaro give this Negroni a more Martini-esque nature. The gin more predominant role, keeping the other spirits from overwhelming.
Mixing - you should know the drill by now.
