The holiday season is just around the corner. There is something about this time of year that makes me want to make pretty cocktails. Maybe it's because the weather has turned cold and there are a lot more grey days among us. A cocktail somehow brightens my mood. Sure it could be because of the alcohol!!! Though I think the pretty colours and garnish are part of that too. It's about embracing and celebrating the season that we are in.
So while I love a good cocktail, you won't find me sipping on anything too sweet. I usually like classic booze forward cocktails. A negroni has slight bitter notes from the campari but it's rounded out with sweet vermouth, orange (I used dehydrated orange slices instead of fresh for garnish) & Gin (juniper). I like to stick rosemary in there for fun. You could even make a rosemary simple syrup. Wouldn't that be lovely?? Especially if you wanted to add a touch more sweetness if that's your thing.
A negroni is a classic Italian cocktail, typically served as an aperitif and
the recipe couldn't be more simple.
