A history of one of the world's most iconic cocktails--originally an Italian"aperitivo," but now a staple of craft bar programs everywhere--with 60 recipes for variations and contemporary updates.
The Negroni is one of the simplest and most elegant drink formulas around: combine one part gin, one part sweet vermouth, and one part Campari, then stir and serve over ice. This bitter, sweet, and smooth drink has inspired countless variations as well as legions of diehard aficionados. In"The Negroni," Gary Regan--barman extraordinaire and author of the iconic book"The Joy of Mixology"--delves into the drink's fun, fascinating history (its origin story is still debated, with battling Italian noblemen laying claim) and provides techniques for modern updates (barrel aging and carbonation among them). Sixty delightfully varied and uniformly tasty recipes round out this spirited collection, which is a must-have for any true cocktail enthusiast.
