Whether you’re on a Viking ship deck or the one overlooking your own backyard, a cool Sicilian negroni is just the thing to take you sailing into the evening. Go with your choice of top-shelf gin or the one suggested in this recipe. This twist on the classic negroni is a lovely refreshing drink that’s great to enjoy with friends or reclining in your favorite easy chair.
3/4 oz high-quality gin, like Tanqueray Malacca or other citrusy gin
3/4 oz Campari
3/4 oz sweet vermouth, like Martini Rosso
1 1/2 oz blood orange juice
Dash of orange bitters
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass or cocktail shaker filled with ice. Stir ingredients or shake depending on how diluted you’d like cocktail to be and strain into a chilled coupe, or over ice into a rocks glass. Garnish with orange twist.
