I created this hybrid Negroni for a welcome to summer gathering hosted by our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm, Longhaul in Garrison. I needed an easy and portable cocktail to celebrate summer.
The ingredients here include our ever favorite Cocchi Americano sweet white vermouth and a new discovery, Amaro Rosso Di Sicilia a wonderful Amaro made with blood orange and herbs which are:
"“Farm to Bottle” a term that has become commonplace in our growing Spirits portfolio, and AMARA is no exception. This artisanal liqueur is produced on-site in Sicily from hand-picked blood orange peels and herbs. " Skurnik Wines Importer

The result was amazing!
