Negroni 101

A top-notch Negroni at Morrison’s Pub in Rome.

The Negroni is one of my favorite cocktails. It is made with equal parts Campari, sweet vermouth and gin and is served over ice in an old fashioned glass with a slice or twist of orange.

You can order two types of negroni in Rome: the classic negroni and the negroni sbagliato or mistaken negroni. The mistaken negroni is like the classic, but goes lighter on the alcohol by replacing the gin with prosecco.

The NYTimes recently shared some good places to get a cocktail in the Eternal City.
