Cocktail #1: Negroni

Starting with the classics… decided to make a Negroni today.  This is one of my favourite pre-dinner or patio sipping cocktails and again (like the Old Fashioned) allows for a number of variations based on what you have lying around the house.  A lot of people have their own ratios, but I stick to the basic 1:1:1 ratio of Campari, sweet vermouth, and gin.  These are also great for parties as you can mix all of these in advance and serve over ice! Here’s my version based on what I have lying around right now!

1.0 oz of Botanist Gin
1.0 oz of Carpano Antica
1.0 oz of Campari

Stir over ice and pour over a single large ice cube in a tumbler glass!
