Last night I was looking for a drink I never made before, I spotted the Maximo di Negroni which I had passed by previously for I lacked Amaro Nonino at the home bar until very recently.
The Negroni is, quite simply, one of the most consumed cocktails in the world, and the most successful mixed drink ever to come out of Italy.
There are now Negronis to suit all needs and the Maximo di Negroni met the nose with an orange, dark grape, and pine aroma. Next, Punt e Mes’ grape continued on into the sip where it mingled with caramel and orange notes from the amaro, and the swallow rounded things off with gin and bitter herbal flavors driven mostly by the Punt e Mes.
Maximo di Negroni:
Build in an old fashioned glass, add ice, stir, and garnish with an orange twist.
