How To Make The Perfect Negroni, Because You Deserve It

Hey, if it's good enough for Stanley Tucci

The beauty of this rendition? It calls for three ingredients — a level of simplicity we like in our at-home beverages. 

The Negroni is, quite simply, a perfect cocktail.

Maybe it’s the perfect cocktail. With equal parts Campari, gin, and sweet vermouth, it couldn’t be easier to make, proving that, like Destiny's Child and Musketeers, the best things really do come in threes.

Intended to be sipped on a hot day, it gives you a certain continental sophistication. Bitter, sweet, dry, and refreshing all at once, the poppy-coloured cocktail has developed a reputation as a summer mainstay, but the truth is there’s never really a bad time to whip one up. Just ask Stanley Tucci.

Now you've seen the master at work, it's your turn. We hit up the experts over on our sister site, FOOD AND WINE, for all there is to know about making the perfect Negroni cocktail...
