Whether I'm home with my partner, or a group of friends I always start the evening with an Aperitivo. In Italy, Aperitivo is a daily ritual, marking the end of the day, the drinks are designed to whet your palette, and always served with a salty snack. This recipe for a White Negroni is a lighter and floral cousin to the bold and bitter Classic Negroni – it still has lemony bitterness from the Suze, a gentian liqueur from France.
- 2oz London Dry Gin or Seedlip Grove 42 (for low ABV)
- .5oz Suze Gentian Liqueur
- 1oz Dry Vermouth
- Lemon Twist Garnish
Build in a rocks glass over ice, stir and garnish with lemon twist.
