Ah, the Negroni. So classic, so simple: equal parts gin, vermouth and Campari. So good it’s got its own week.

The balanced sweetness and bitterness of a Negroni is so refreshing on a hot day, but as the weather cools, adding a bit of unexpected richness and body in the form of a full egg and some rich simple syrup (two parts sugar to one part water) is a welcome twist. 192 more words
