Campari was the result of Gaspare Campari’s experiments in concocting new beverages. It is still produced today with the same ingredients and following the confidential recipe which remains a secret known only to the very few people in charge of the production process. Campari is the result of the infusion of herbs, aromatic plants and fruit in alcohol and water; these last two being the recipe's only known ingredients.
1 ounce dry gin
1 ounce Campari
1 ounce sweet vermouth
To serve a Negroni straight up, combine the ingredients in a mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir well for 20 seconds, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist a piece of orange peel over the drink, and use the twist as garnish.
