While the proportions of the classic Negroni are accepted as being equal parts, with some boozehounds slightly upping the gin, the proportions of this amaro-dolce riff vary tremendously. Recipes include equal parts to twice as much amaro as the other ingredients, to one-and-a-half parts gin to one part each of the other ingredients. Having tried them all (well, all I could find/come up with). I've settled on this 7:6:5 formula which is amaro-forward, yet with assertive gin notes and not being overly sweet or boozy. However, you may prefer this recipe from Montenegro:
40ml (1⅓oz) Amaro Montenegro
20ml (⅔oz) Gin
20ml (⅔oz) Rosso (sweet) Vermouth
2 drops Aromatic bitters
Made with Rosso Antico in place of rosso (sweet) vermouth.
