Review:

This deep cherry red Negroni-like aperitivo is equally tasty shaken and served straight-up – indeed that's how it was originally made, like a Shakerato. If served shaken, then a white head should cover the drink's surface, or it's not been shaken hard enough. The cocktail should then be consumed before the head fades.

Either shaken or stirred, sweet vermouth/port predominates with bitter liqueur providing balance.

History:

Created March 2018 by yours truly at the Cabinet Room in London, England.

Alcohol content:

  • 1.4 standard drinks
  • 16.31% alc./vol. (32.62° proof)
