Comment:

Originally made with Riesling Rhine wine, the Cardinale has become a Negroni made with dry vermouth, producing a lighter cocktail than when made with the more usual sweet vermouth. However, we encourage you to try the original recipe (below) with Riesling.

Variant:

Negroni

About:

Although some have attributed the origin of this cocktail to Harry's Bar in Venice, evidence and testimonies collated by Luca Di Francia, Head Bartender at the Orum Bar at Westin Excelsior in Rome, suggest this Negroni-like Italian cocktail was indeed, as many suspected, created in the 1950s by one of his predecessors, Giovanni Raimondo at what was then The Excelsior Hotel.
