The Modern Negroni Cocktail Recipe
Here is a simple and delicious Modern Negroni Cocktail Recipe which is a twist on the classic gin cocktail everyone should know how to make. Inspired by a recipe from a favorite restaurant in Portland, OR, this will become your new favorite version.
The Negroni is a classic gin cocktail that is easy to make and a favorite among many. Because of its sweet nature, the Negroni is enjoyed by those who even claim not to like gin 🤯. The classic Negroni is made with Campari but is not my favorite because it’s too sweet (is that a thing??? I guess it can be in very limited circumstances).
This Modern Negroni Cocktail Recipe is an updated version of the Negroni with a herbal quality that is simply divine. The herbal flavor comes from a made-in-Oregon liqueur called Calisaya. If you cant find Calisaya made by Elixir Craft Spirits, you could substitute with another sweet herbal liqueur such as amaro.
Modern Negroni Cocktail Recipe
- 1 oz Old Tom Gin (I used Ransom)
- 1 oz sweet vermouth
- 1 oz Calisaya or your favorite sweet herbal liqueur
- orange peel for garnish
- Squeeze oil from orange peel into a chilled glass and swirl around the rim for aroma and flavor. Stir all ingredients in a stirring glass with ice for 20-30 seconds. Strain into the prepared glass. Add the orange peel to the top and enjoy!
- This cocktail is served neat but could also be served over a large rock if desired.
