How to make:
POUR all ingredients into ice-filled glass and STIR.
Orange wedge or slice and/or orange zest twist
Bitter and dry, but very tasty. This no namby-pamby drink is traditionally assembled and mixed directly in the glass. There is something about a Negroni that does not suit fussing about with mixing glasses and strainers. To garnish with a lemon slice is a heinous crime but I am quite partial to a fat orange wedge.
