Negroni

I had never drank one of these before and they seem popular. I used this recipe but subbed out the Campari with Aperol (seemed like sometimes it has been subbed in some recipes)


Is this how they are supposed to taste or did I mess up? Thanks for your thoughts on the matter

Hi, I've lurked here a bit but finally joined to report that I just had a mai tai (of sorts) with 30-year-old Appleton Punch tonight! I was worried that the rum would be off, but it was delicious! Guess I should have taken a picture.

I've been working on a house and hit it off with the owners. She took me to the garage and opened a dusty homemade plywood box liquor cabinet and told me to take whatever I wanted, except for the Fireball lol. Her father collected some liquor but she's much more into wine. I got 2 bottles of Appleton (special and punch) that I'm estimating are 30-years old based on the tax stamp and "4/5 quart" mark. I also got an old bottle of Cointreau, all unopened (until tonight)!

Still celebrating Black Tot Day with an Atomic Painkiller ...

Featuring not only Pusser’s British Navy Rum, but also some Smith & Cross and Kohala Bay for good measure. I also added some lime juice and Don’s Spices #2 for balance. The full recipe is posted along with this comprehensive look back at the history of Naval Rum thanks to Paul McFadyen's excellent seminar at the 2013 Miami Rum Festival ...

A Negroni made with Campari is going to taste entirely different, and much much better. Aperol is a "starter amaro" and is much more orange-accented than it is bitter. There are decent cocktails to be made with Aperol but they will all be dominated by the orange-sweet flavors of that liqueur.

Also, disregard that cocktail app's instructions to shake a Negroni. Definitely want to stir this one as it really suffers from the tiny air bubbles shaking introduces. I usually do not send lousy drinks back when dining out (mostly I consider it a lesson to stick with beer at most places), but if I order a Negroni and specify "stirr don't shake!" and they still screw it up by shaking I will send it back.

Thanks S&R! I need to grab some Campari. I thought the flavor was a bit off.

Yeah, you must have the bitter or it won't work since you have the sweet vermouth.

Luna - glad to see you experimenting with Aperol - it lives next to Campari in most stores & I wondered what it's uses might be. What are your thoughts?

Campari is a breed a apart, the Negroni is a 'hard' drink - the Campari is sure bitter! But if you go to the effort of trying buying some & like it, you'll love the Jungle Bird It's definitely in regular rotation at my house with 50:50 Cockspur / Myers in place of the 1 1/2 parts dark Jamaican.

Drink 1: Captains Grog
Drink 2: Mai Tai
Drink 3: ...Earthquake!!!

Re the Earthquake:
I used Absent Absinthe, 50:50 Macieira / Remy Martin. I stirred it over ice to chill it, it went louche - it's always pleasing when that reaction happens but I don't think that was what was intended, doh

Besides that, as a drink it is... a bit of a bruiser! I like the Sazerac & Corpse Reviver #2 but these contain much less absinthe. I found the brandy gets pushed back & the drink has 2 flavours: absinthe &... more absinthe.

Oh well, it was fun to try!

A good introduction to Aperol is. . . the Introduction to Aperol - a cocktail by Audrey Saunders of NYC's Pegu Club.

http://www.drinkboy.com/Cocktails/Recipe.aspx?itemid=248

It's very light and pretty orange-inflected, but it's a balanced drink and a good craft cocktail gateway drink.

Having a 151 Swizzle. Disregarded the instructions to flash-blend Donn style and instead swizzled with the perfect bois lélé swizzle stick from Cocktail Kingdom.

A couple of glasse’s of Rodney Strong Cab and a Margarita Pizza from Deluca’s in Whittier were perfectly complimented by a couple of snifters of Kaniche XO.

Experimenting with Jet Pilot's while listening to The Sounds of Exotic Island ($3 estate sale find last weekend - sadly they had no other similar records).

I did make a Jungle Bird the other day just to try the recipe. Very tasty!

I have been mainly using the Aperol in French drinks lately. I have been on a big absinthe kick for quite some time so I have been going through those recipes. I don't mind the Absinthe forward drinks, even the Earthquake. But I am strange I guess.

Went to Bali Hai last night and almost went through the whole "strong" menu, just didn't have a scorpion bowl.



Tasted some Denizen rum after that.


I think it would be a good sub for Appleton, it leaned more toward the Jamaican side in my opinion.

Here is a Cardenal I made the other day. My friend broke my good Mezcal, and replaced it with this garbage (last time he gets behind my bar) so the drink was way off and I had to go buy more Mezcal. Good use for Aperol though.

Here is the recipe if you are interested:
1.5 oz Mezcal
.75 oz Aperol
.75 oz sweet Vermouth
1.5 oz Blood Orange Juice


Here is me in the process of reverse engineering a drink from a local bar. Almost there, but my "hellfire" bitters are not hot enough. I need more heat!

This is something I threw together, I guess a Scotch Fizz or something close to it. I wanted something smokey but the Mezcal I had sucked so I switched to Scotch. I really have been enjoying the Absinthe as well as egg white drinks. I am still a bit scared to experiment with Absinthe though, I would like to learn more recipes first. I did have some success making a Corpse Reviver #2 Fizz, pretty tasty!

The Necromancer is one of my favorite recipes, but it is another that is Absinthe forward. Here is that recipe:

1.5 oz Absinthe Verte
.5 oz bottled water
.5 oz Creme de Violette
1 dash Peychaud bitters
garnish with edible flowers (purple)

I just bought some edible flowers for my garden, so I will soon post a pic of this drink with the full garnish.

Sorry, not all of these are tiki, I usually will stick to rum or tiki on this thread

I am going to Tiki Ti on Friday, if anyone out there in internetsville wants to have a drink. I am going to try to get there at 4 when they open. I will be posting pictures!
