Equal-Parts Negroni

Jim Kearns, Le Crocodile | Brooklyn, NY

Where many modern Negroni recipes start with an ounce and a half of gin, this version uses equal parts of all ingredients. “Cap Corse Rouge, a quinquina from Corsica, provides a dusty, earthy dryness that compliments the bitter in the Campari, harkening back to the original formulation of the popular aperitif,” notes Jim Kearns.
