"Something different. Gin, campari and sweet vermouth make a refreshing and sophisticated cocktail."

I add a similar drink on Princess Cruises called a Bombay Rose Martini. It was (is) fantastic! If you like Campari and you like martinis, this is the one!
Must be an aquired taste. Everyone at my party hated it. Including myself. Way too strong of an alcoholic taste. Sorry and thanks anyway. At least now I know what a Negroni tastes like if anyone asks. :)
I spent 7 years in Italy, specifically in Rome, for graduate study. My new Italian friends were anxious to get me to try one of their native drinks, but the unusual combination of ingredients put me off at first. I eventually tried it and have loved Negronis ever since! My friends and I usually add about 1.5 ounces of gin since the campari and sweet vermouth tend to cancel each other in terms of sharpness vs. sweetness. ONE WARNING: These drinks are 100% alcohol. Be careful!
it's a classic and this is my favorite cocktail. i however, skip the lemon zest and squeze a large wedge of orange (navel preferred) and sink the orange peel and all in to my glass. i also place ice in my glass first just to extend the pleasure of sipping something so intoxicating! i will also say, it is an acquired taste, like scotch or whiskey. enjoy!
This is the standard recipe but I always instruct the bar on two points. First off, (I sometimes order it with Vodka in which case it is called a Negroski)I always ask for it in a collins glass instead of the old fashioned glass that is standard, and secondly, I ask to mix it with a generous splash of soda (hence the taller glass) and that cuts the alcohol considerably and makes it a primo morning or summer drink. Always twist with lemon--the standard recipe can go either way.
Acquired taste for the campari. I drink a perfect negroni: split the vermouth: 1/2 sweet, 1/2 dry. Enloy.
I prefer mine to be a tad sweeter (more sweet vermouth) given the bitterness of the campari.
I'm a fan of Campari so I go a little heavy on it in my summer favorite drink, the Negroni.
