Review:

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

Variant:

Made with Rosso Antico in place of rosso (sweet) vermouth.

History:

Rudi Carraro, UK brand ambassador for Amaro Montenegro, has his own version of the MonteNegroni consisting:
40ml Amaro Montenegro
25ml Brooklyn Gin
20ml Select Aperitivo
