Jamaican Negroni

Jamaican Negroni cocktail garnished with an orange twist

Stir with ice, strain and serve over a large ice cube in a rocks glass. Garnish with an orange twist.

We came across this recipe created by Julian Cox of Il Porcellino, Chicago, in Imbibe Magazine. It is a modification of the Kingston Negroni. The Kingston Negroni was created in 2009 in New York by Joaquín Simó. This version tones down the funkiness of the Smith & Cross a little but what I really enjoy is the lingering aftertaste of vanilla that comes from the Cocchi Vermouth di Torino.
