Even if the only island you’re visiting this weekend is the kitchen island, you can still sail into the Mediterranean sunset with Viking’s Sicilain Negroni recipe. A twist on the classic cocktail, founded in delightfully indulgent Florence in the 1920s, this version uses blood orange for maximum impact.
- ¾ oz (22 ml) high quality citrusy gin, like Tanqueray Malacca
- ¾ oz (22 ml) Campari
- ¾ oz (22 ml) sweet vermouth, like Martini Rosso
- 1½ oz (44 ml) blood orange juice
- Dash of orange bitters
- Orange peel to garnish
MIX IT UP
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass or cocktail shaker filled with ice. Stir ingredients or shake depending on how diluted you would like cocktail to be and strain into a chilled coupe, or over ice into a rocks glass. Garnish with orange twist. Bellissima!
