Negroni Recipe: Classic Cocktails

Sometimes reinventing the wheel is fun. Other times, you just want a classic cocktail. If you ask me, the Negroni is a perfect drink. It's stiff, bitter, a little bit sweet and a little bit herbal. It's a gorgeous, party-dress red, and it hails from Italy. What could be better?

Tip

Looking for something equally beautiful, equally bitter, but a little more day-drinkable? How about the Americano?
