When I first put my lips to a negroni, my face puckered in disgust. I was not expecting it to taste the way it does. I was not expecting a bitter drink. I had to acquire the taste. It took me about 3 other attempts before I fell in love with it. Now, It’s one of my favorite cocktails. Maybe because of how sophisticated my palate has become. Or maybe it’s because I like Campari now.
How about you? Do you like negronis? If you do, did you have to acquire the taste as well? I hope you like my little riff on this classic. Enjoy!
