I really like the Negroni. It makes a great before dinner drink. The campari is the perfect spirit to preparing the palate for a meal.So Here’s an excellant alternative for those with a distast for gin, God forbid. This is similar but instead of gin, we substitute bourbon.’
1 1/2 oz. Makers Mark bourbon
1 oz. Campari
Tools: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer
Garnish: orange slice, lemon twist or cherry
Stir long and well with ice in a mixing glass and strain into a cocktail glass.
