Papà ‘Groni: A Negroni with Flare

A traditional Negroni gets turned on its head in this cocktail recipe from Mixologist Sarah Cascone. Notes of cinnamon, toffee, and caramel dance with citrus and fruit flavors for a refreshing drink, perfect for easing you from summer into fall. Mix up a batch and share with friends around a fire.

Traditionally speaking, the Negroni is made with equal parts Campari, gin, and sweet red vermouth and always garnished with an orange wheel.
