Heads up! Take it easy on this Negroni recipe, or you may end up like the cocktail’s name: punch drunk. It calls for all the ingredients of a classic Negroni, but a fruity simple syrup and a bit of brut champagne make the Punch Drunk cocktail all too easy to drink. Don’t say we didn’t warn you…
Traditionally speaking, the Negroni is made with equal parts Campari, gin, and sweet red vermouth and always garnished with an orange wheel.
