Introduction

I know the Negroni is supposed to be made with gin and without the aid of lemon juice, but I've twisted it in all kinds of ways... to me it tastes somewhat like the preferable version of an Averna as appetiser being against anything sweet or milky in the cocktail-department, I am breaking a lance for the comeback of old-fashioned bitter aperitifs such as Campari, Averna and Cynar (artichoke-based...). Don't know if it will catch on, though....

Ingredients

Serves: 3-4

Metric Cups
  • 1 lemon (large-ish, juice of)
  • 3 shots vermouth (dark)
  • 3 shots campari
  • 3 shots vodka (iced - vodka perpetually left in the freezer and therefore of a syrupy consistency, though I am sure everyone stores their vodka this way anyway)
  • ice cube (lots - I am not of the purist school of cocktail-making that says no to ice, quite the opposite, really - bring it on!)

Method

Twisted Negroni is a community recipe submitted by Saskia and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Combine all ingredients (including the ice) in a shaker and shake well.
  • Divide over 3-4 glasses that have 1 or two blocks of ice in them.
  • Squeeze some lemon rind over these glasses and serve! (Or, alternately, use just one glass and finish the shaker by yourself... depending on your state of mind!). Oh, yes, these are perfect as pre-dinner drinks. In that case: don't serve too many because people may get side-tracked...
