If you’re like many of us here at Astor Wines & Spirits, you’re fond of the Negroni Cocktail. It’s the perfect balance of the bitterness of Campari, the sweetness of Vermouth, and the kick of your favorite gin. Drink it as an aperitivo to start the evening, or use it to end the night with a bang!
Here’s a variation on the Negroni using Tequila. It’s perfect for warmer spring weather. The herbal Dry Vermouth highlights the vegetal quality of the Dos Manos Blanco Tequila, while the Campari and Sweet Vermouth round out the bittersweet flavors we love so well in the classic.
Make a batch for an afternoon in the park!
Add all ingredients to an ice-filled shaker and stir until well chilled. Strain into an ice-filled tumbler or a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a twist of lemon.
