5 Recipes For Nouveau Negronis

Posted: 10/03/11 06:09 PM ET

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then the Negroni is one blushing beauty of a cocktail. A seemingly simple combination of gin, Campari and sweet vermouth, this Italian classic was first mixed at the request of Count Camillo Negroni in 1919 and has inspired countless variations in the near century since. From a version mixed with fizzy lambrusco to one swizzled until icy cold, here are five recipes each with its own unique spin on the original. Thirsty for more? Click here for our list of which bars and restaurants are mixing up some of the best Negronis around the country.

Roasted Orange Negroni Sbagliato
Sbagliato may mean wrong in Italian, but there’s no mistaking the deliciousness of this slightly bitter, yet delightfully bubbly cocktail. A lightly charred orange wedge offers an added depth of flavor while a splash of lambrusco lightens things up a tad. Click here for the recipe.
