If you’re looking for a crisp cocktail to enjoy on summer evenings, then you can’t go wrong with a Negroni. This beautiful Italian drink it a staple in Italy, but has become increasingly popular right here in the U.S.
The Negroni is a bright red color with a colorful orange peel topping it off to make it simply gorgeous.
This drink is refreshing, but not overly sweet, due to the bitter Campari and gin that balances out the sweetness of the vermouth. Since this drink is not too sweet, it’s great for enjoying as an aperitif or during a meal.
