But you may want to try your hand making a Negroni, Italy’s prized concoction, at home. The Negroni has been a top pick of many and as such, all kinds of spirits (not just the classically perfect gin) wanted to get in on the action. It’s so cherished, that it has a whole week dedicated to it (talk about a self-obsessed cocktail).
So have some fun and spice things up this year with some intriguing and tantalizing variations from iconic brands such as Dos Hombres, St. George Spirits, Woodford Reserve, Ilegal Mezcal.
