The Perfect Negroni

If you follow Keith along on Instagram, you have probably seen a Negroni or two...or three pass through his feed.  It's no secret that the Negroni is a perfect cocktail.  Well, we wanted to share the recipe so you can make this simple, but complex drink at home for yourself.  Our friend Floyd, who you've surely met at our studio during EAST, dropped by to share his knowledge with us.  As we all know, there is never a wrong time to have a Negroni. 

Go ahead and make one for yourself at's worth it.


1 oz Gin (Floyd suggests Ford's Gin, but your favorite works too)

1 oz Sweet Vermouth

1 oz. Campari

Orange Peel for Garnish

Fill a mixing glass with ice.  Pour 1 oz. each of Gin, Vermouth, and Campari into the mixing glass.  Stir until chilled (30-60 seconds).  Strain into a cup (preferably with a big, beautiful cube inside).  Gently squeeze and twist the orange peel over the glass to release the oils. 

Drink and repeat as necessary.
