A south of the border twist on the classic negroni. Summer’s running thin, gotta keep it fresh while it’s appropriate.
Tequila (blanco). Blanco is an elegant and unaged take on tequila. Bottles of a higher end tend to be reasonably priced and carry floral notes. Agave sweetness is typically aided by minerals both crisp and peppery. Reserva or Siete Leguas.
Sweet Vermouth. Standard. Cuts into the blanco and campari simultaneously to balance out the mixture.
Campari. The alcoholic liqueur holds notes of bitter orange, sweet cherry, and a bit of cinnamon spice. The addition cuts into the tequila and levels with tartness all around.
Grapefruit. Garnish a slice on the rim.
Shake and serve...
All ingredients into a mixing glass, like our our mason shaker and fill with ice. Shake and strain into a rocks glass either chilled or full of fresh ice. Garnish the grapefruit and enjoy.
1 oz Blanco Tequila
1 oz Sweet Vermouth
