Summer is here. Or for those of us in the Pacific Northwest, it’s almost here. At least it’s not as consistently cool and wet. For me, summer means Negronis, that sinfully simple equal ratio three-ingredient drink which is both beautiful, stylish, and mighty tasty. And while making your Negroni at home is as simple as flipping through your pages of Three Ingredient Cocktails, you should also consider drinking out this week for a cause. Imbibe Magazine and Campari sponsor Negroni Week each year. For a week (June 5-11), thousands of venues participate in shaking up the drink that says summer is here and donating a portion of their revenues to charity. So, drink out this week at a participating venue, but then for the rest of the summer, feel free to enjoy your Negroni at home.
1 ounce gin
1 ounce Campari
1 ounce sweet vermouth
Mix (or shake if you do prefer) with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Sip fabulously!
