Magnificent Bartender: Negroni

Magnificent Bartender: Negroni
We're falling behind on mixing instructions for our Cocktail Color Changing Guide, but better late than never we say, especially when it involves getting hammered in style. Up now: the Negroni, both in Poor Bastard and Magnificent Bastard versions.









Poor Bastard - Negroni

2 parts everyday gin (Seagram's Extra Dry)

1 part Campari

1 part sweet vermouth

Throw all these into a low ball glass with a bunch of ice, stir it up and toss on a slice or wedge of an orange.

MB - Negroni

5 parts Plymouth gin

2 parts Campari

1 part Pimm's No. 1 Cup

1 part sweet vermouth

1 part dry vermouth

2 dashes of orange bitters

Quick shake or stir and pour into chilled Martini glass. Garnish with an orange twist.


POURCAST

BETA

Sazerac

  • 3 shots rye whiskey (or to taste)
  • 1 sugar cube
  • Peychaud's Bitters
  • quarter shot of Absinthe
  • lemon twist

Soak the sugar cube with the bitters and place in the bottom of a highball glass. Mash with the back of a spoon (or muddler, which we hope has not been used to make a Mojito), add the rye whiskey and fill the glass with ice. Stir for about 30 seconds and then strain into another lowball glass that has been rinsed with Absinthe and filled about halfway with ice. Garnish with a lemon twist.
