Review:

A short and lightly bitter aperitif-style cocktail with an attractive golden, almost sunny appearance.

History:

Adapted from a 2019 recipe by Mattia Lombardi, Amsterdam, this cocktail was inspired by the Negroni and the Brandy Alexander, and a mistake he made during his first bar shift while making them. "The white wine vinegar is a dedication to my colleague and friend Cécile Fayn as it's her favourite ingredient."
