As most of you probably already know by now, the Negroni is one of my go-to cocktails.
The Negroni is a cocktail recipe that’s as classic as they come. It’s a simple, yet sophisticated drink and has a unique flavor that’s both bitter and sweet. Negronis are garnished with a twist of orange, which adds a pop of orange color to the jewel tones of gin, vermouth, and Campari in the glass. So what could be better than enjoying one? Answer: the French Negroni, a tasty twist on a classic cocktail and, as you might have guessed, my new favorite!
The French Negroni is an easy cocktail recipe to follow and only requires a few ingredients: Cognac, Campari, and Red Vermouth.
The drink is a beautiful crimson color and has a slightly bitter and bold flavor. Talk about a drink with a big personality! (And, as an added bonus, it is also very Instagram-worthy.) So if you’re looking for a delicious, rather photogenic cocktail, the French Negroni is the perfect choice.
Here’s how to make a French Negroni:
Step 1: Add all ingredients to a beaker and top with ice.
Step 2: Stir until chilled.
Step 3: Add large ice cube or sphere to a cocktail glass and strain beaker contents overtop.
Step 4: Garnish with an orange peel.
The French Negroni is a delightful drink that combines the classic flavors of a Negroni with a French twist. The result is a satisfyingly bitter and herbal drink that is perfect for sipping.
Tip: The French Negroni is best enjoyed on a sunny patio with good company. Bon appétit!
