It's Friday. You (we) deserve a cocktail. I am going to try to post about a cocktail every Friday, so that you can be inspired to order or make something new each week. One of my favorite go-to cocktails is the Negroni, and several friends I've introduced to them are now hooked (I'm looking at you, Lauren & Kim). You can serve a Negroni either straight up or on the rocks, but either way it's an elegant, albeit potent, way to kick off your weekend. You can play with the ratios or the ingredients a bit, but here's the basic recipe.
Stir with ice and strain into either a cocktail glass or a rocks glass with fresh ice. Garnish with an orange twist.
