Cocktails at Home: Tequila Negroni
With its delectably bitter taste, the Negroni holds a special place in our classic cocktail library. But today we’re bringing a dash of Mexican verve to this simple three-part Italian cocktail, with Volcán de mi Tierra’s smooth and zesty Tequila Blanco. It is said that the Negroni was invented when Italian Count Camillo Negroni demanded his Americano cocktail be mixed with gin instead of soda. We hope he’d approve of our riff on his signature serve.
