Roasted Orange Negroni Spaliato Recipe

Makes 1 drink

For the roasted oranges:
1 orange, halved, each half cut into “half moon” segments
1-1/2 cups sweet Italian vermouth, such as Carpano Antica Formula

For the cocktail:
2 ounces sweet Italian vermouth, such as Carpano Antica Formula
2 ounces Campari
3 to 4 ounces sparkling wine, whichever brand you prefer

To make the roasted oranges:
In small bowl, toss together the orange segments and vermouth. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator overnight.

Preheat an oven to 400ºF.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil and arrange the orange slices on it.  Roast in the oven until deep golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.  Let cool.  Do Ahead: the oranges can be roasted and stored, refrigerated in an airtight container, for up to 4 days.

To make the cocktail:
In a mixing glass, muddle together 1 roasted orange segment with the vermouth.  Add the Campari to the glass, fill it with ice, and shake vigorously until the glass feels cold, 10 to 20 seconds.

Strain the drink into a chilled rocks glass filled with ice.  Top off with sparkling wine and serve immediately.

Mix things up at your next dinner party with these delectable cocktails. Watch Joe’s video for an easy demonstration.
