A Negroni and Italian meatballs are a match made in heaven. So of course, pair this classic cocktail up with similar nibbles like Italian sausage, roasted or fresh fennel, hearty ragu, Pecorino or Parmigiano-Reggiano, Eggplant Parmesan, and tomato-based dishes with oregano, rosemary and parsley.
- 1 oz gin
- 1 oz Campari
- 1 oz sweet vermouth
- Orange twist, for garnish
Place everything but the orange twist in mixing glass and fill with ice. Gently stir with a long-handled spoon until thoroughly chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into chilled cocktail glass. Using a channel knife or citrus stripper, zest a strip of orange over the cocktail (so drink will catch the released oil) and place in drink.
