Things You'll Need

  • 1 part (1/2 ounce) Sweet Red Vermouth (1/2 ounce)
  • 1 part (1/2 ounce) Campari
  • 1 part (1/2 ounce) London Dry Gin
  • Orange peel for garnish

Step 1: Gather your Ingredients and Tools

You don't need anything fancy like a cocktail shaker to make a Negroni. This drink is stirred, not shaken. A vegetable peeler is really the only tool you need for creating the garnish. A jigger is helpful, but a liquid measuring cup will also get the job done.
