The Stanley Tucci Balsamic Negroni
A delicious elevated twist on the classic Negroni Cocktail
For those that don't know Stanley Tucci is an American actor, writer, producer and former fashion model. For those with an interest in cocktails however Mr. Tucci posted his recipe for his favorite Negroni on social media and that video went viral .But more recently he has been filming a show for CNN called "Searching for Italy". That is where we find this elevated recipe !
The Balsamic adds an extra dimension to an already great classic cocktail . Instead of being an overpowering element the vinegar actually blends nicely in the background bringing an almost hidden tanginess to the drink.
If you love a Negroni I urge you to try this recipe next time you make one.
Well done Mr. Tucci . I urge you to give this one a whirl Rustys. Also if you want to follow Mr. Tucci's exact recipe his method is shaken with ice and to be drank straight up with no ice. But a nice wedge of orange is a must and with a little juice squeezed in.
My version I stuck with stirring over ice and strained over some nice big ice cubes .
2 oz. Gin
1 oz. Campari
1 oz. Sweet Vermouth
1 Bar spoon Aged Balsamic
1 Orange Wedge
Add all ingredients over ice and stir until chilled.
Strain into glass with ice.
Add Orange wedge and squeeze a little juice from it .
Drink down and enjoy Rustys and go checkout some other cocktails from Stanley Tucci's Social Media.
Remember to enjoy responsibly and to drink better !
