The Classic Negroni

Julip Made Negroni2 I was reading an article by Tom Sietsema in the Washington Post the other day about the secrets of DC's best bartenders.  In it, the bartenders interviewed agreed that the most important aspect of bar tending, is technique and that this can best be demonstrated with perfect execution of the classics.  Inspired by that, I've decided to go back to some of the basics and recreate some of the most classic drinks.

The Negroni, although not hugely popular, but becoming more so in the U.S., is an Italian apéritif.  It is made bitter by the campari, but sweetened a bit by the sweet vermouth.  It is a refreshing drink for the spring and summer, and even more so if you add some club soda.
