Aquavit Negroni

aquavit-negroni-02

I have yet to meet a Negroni riff I didn’t like, and this herbaceous one is no exception. In this Aquavit Negroni, I like to pair aquavit with Lillet Blanc, rather than sweet vermouth, but feel free to try sweet vermouth if that’s what you have on hand! It’s also quite nice but a bit drier using a dry vermouth like Noilly Prat. You could opt for a simple expressed orange twist here, but I find that a juicy slice of pink grapefruit adds a whole new dimension of flavor.

This riff on the classic Negroni substitutes the Scandinavian spirit aquavit (also known as akvavit) in place of gin for even more herbal flavor.
