1 ounce dry gin
1 ounce sweet vermouth
1 ounce Campari
|[notice how despite the deep orange color from the campari, by stirring the cocktail in the shaker versus shaking it you preserve a handsome clarity throughout the drink that's retained even through pouring]|
*Note: many bartenders recommend when working with gin, to stir and not shake it as what Bond would have us do. By shaking it, it clouds the delicate properties in the gin and you're left with a cloudier end product; by stirring you will preserve gin's incredible clarity and have a much better looking cocktail. Shaking versus stirring won't alter the taste of it; it's purely aesthetic.
**We also made the Negroni with Lillet instead of the sweet vermouth because that's what we had on hand -- came out beautifully!
