The Negroni is a classic Italian cocktail made with just three ingredients in equal parts: gin, sweet vermouth and Campari!
Print Recipe


  • 1 oz gin
  • 1 oz sweet vermouth
  • 1 oz Campari


  • Use a vegetable peeler to cut wide twists of orange peel. Be sure you're just getting the orange part of the peel and not the bitter white pith underneath.
  • In a cocktail shaker, pour the gin, sweet vermouth and Campari over ice and stir until well-chilled.
  • Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice. Garnish with the orange peel and serve.


  • Traditionally, a Negroni is stirred and served on the rocks. But if you prefer to shake it and serve it up in a coupe glass, go for it! It's your house.
  • Use a good gin and a good vermouth since there are no mixers to cover the taste of a cheap liquor!
  • Be sure to read the post above for FAQs, best liquor brands to use, and tips on which cocktail snacks to serve with Negronis!
