A beloved classic from Con Alma’s very first cocktail list, this Negroni is built around a base of Zafra rum. This rich, 21-year-old rum burnishes the drink to a special mellowness. Contratto, with its ingredient list of 28 herbs, roots, and spices gives added complexity, as do the bark and cherry notes of Amargo-Vallet.

1 oz Contratto Aperitif
¼ oz Amargo-Vallet Angostura Bitter
Add the rum, Campari, Contratto Aperitif, and bitters to a mixing glass filled with ice and stir until well-chilled. Strain into a rock glass over a large ice cube.
