When making a classic cocktail, there is no room for deviation. Call it by another name if you must (frozen margarita anyone?), but if you're going to take on a classic you need to make it right.
So it is with the Negroni, a simple classic that has roared back into popularity in recent years. It's one of the easiest to make because no matter how many batches you have drunk (no judgement) the recipe is foolproof. All you need to do, no matter the size of your cocktail, is pour all three ingredients in equal parts. You don't even need to shake it — who said cocktails had to be complicated? Stick to the classics and you'll be fine.
