Friday Cocktail Blogging: Back to bitters and 300th
After last weeks flirtation with a sweet cokctail, we are back to bitters. I am gradually growing to love the taste of bitters in my cocktail. So I tried this drink which is similar to the Negroni but uses whiskey instead of gin.
- 2 parts Jack Daniels
- 1 part Campari
- 1 part Dry Vermouth
Add ingredients to cracked ice in a mixing glass – stir gently and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a twist of orange. The original recipe also uses equal parts of whiskey, Campari and Vermouth – but I toned down the bitter a bit.
Incidentally, this is my 300th post. Its mere piffle,both quality and quantity-wise, with respect to most blogging giants (like this dude), but certain amount of personal satisfaction comes when I think back on how this blog has grown. And I will drink to that. Cheers !
