The Best Homemade Negroni Cocktail Recipe - Easy Tiger
For a longtime the Negroni has been known as the bartender's favourite cocktail, one that casual cocktail drinkers never seemed to consider when browsing their leather-bound menus. At long last, gin has skyrocketed in popularity, and so too has this perfect cocktail. 



The next stage in this renaissance, is the realisation that a Negroni doesn't need to cost $18 and be prepared by a bow-tied mixologist - it's actually incredibly simple to make at home. 

So how do you make the perfect homemade Negroni?

What you'll need

  • Gin - the better the gin, the better your Negroni 
  • Campari - or any orange aperitif (Aperol makes a more sweet version)
  • Sweet vermouth (red/rosso) - again, the better the better
  • An Orange - We don't sell those, so steal one from your neighbour's tree


  1. Add 1 shot (30ml) each of your Gin, Campari and Sweet Vermouth to a mixing glass filled with ice, and stir in circles until well-chilled - 30 laps around the glass is a good rule of thumb.

  2. Strain your concoction into the prettiest glass at hand, over a large ice cube (or 3 or 4 boring ice cubes).

  3. Garnish with a twisted orange peel - Actually a lot easier than it looks, just run a small knife along the skin of the orange for a couple of inches, then twist it into a spiral.


 Easy huh.
