Negroni Frappé

Naren Young, Dante | New York City

Naren Young’s shaken riff on the Negroni is a refreshing and lower-proof alternative to the traditional Italian cocktail. The the hard shake and pour over crushed ice results in an almost-frozen combination of bitters, gin and orange juice—an ideal aperitivo for a hot afternoon.


Serving: 1

  • 3/4 ounce gin, preferably Beefeater
  • 3/4 ounce Meletti Bitter
  • 3/4 ounce sweet vermouth, preferably Martini & Rossi Gran Lusso
  • 3/4 ounce orange juice
  • 3 dashes orange bitters

Garnish: grated orange zest

  1. Combine all ingredients in shaker and shake very quickly.
  2. Strain over crushed ice into footed highball.
  3. Garnish with grated orange zest.
