Naughty Negroni Drink Recipe

Legend says that this beautiful sunset-coloured cocktail was created in Florence, Italy, in the 1920s. It was named after Count Camillo Negroni, who always ordered a combination of Campari, sweet vermouth, and gin. This version is lighter thanks to the addition of the sparkling wine Moscato d'Asti.

1 oz. Campari
1 oz. sweet vermouth
1/2 oz. gin
4 oz. Moscato d’Asti sparkling wine
Long spiral of orange peel, for garnish


Step 1: Add the Campari, vermouth, and gin to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until well chilled.

Step 2: Pour into a champagne flute. Top off with the Moscato. Garnish with the orange peel.
