Alpine Negroni

Naren Young, Dante | New York

alpine negroni

Naren Young, whose New York bar, Dante, famously boasts an entire section of their menu dedicated to the Negroni, offers this bitter, winterized rendition on the White Negroni. Swapping in Cocchi Americano in place of Lillet Blanc, and adding in a measure of Génépy plus a bracing splash of crème de menthe, it’s a familiar play on a bitter mainstay.
