Negroni Week

June 24-30 has been designated as Negroni Week by Imbibe magazine and Campari to raise money for charities around the world. LEARN MORE!

Now celebrating its 100th year, the classic Negroni cocktail is equal parts of gin, sweet vermouth and Campari. I decided to enter the Beefeater Negroni contest this year, and this is my submitted recipe:

Negroni Pompelmo: 1 ounce Beefeater gin, 1 ounce Campari, 1 ounce sweet vermouth, 1 ounce Pompelmo San Pellegrino (grapefruit soda), and pink grapefruit twist for garnish. This is my first attempt at photographing a cocktail, and judging by some of the wonderful photos submitted, I have a ways to go before being a finalist!
