Classic Negroni cocktail

Aaah, the Negroni cocktail. It’s such a grown up drink, yet who can fault its simplicity and depth of flavour?

I simply love a Negroni and ensure I keep the ingredients handy in the fridge for whenever I feel the urge to indulge in this Italian classic.

Here’s the one, the only recipe for the Negroni. The only thing you need now is to choose your brand of spirits, but don’t even think about substituting Campari, as it’s what gives this its insanely happy vibe.
