Clementine Negroni Cocktail
PUBLISHED ON: 11.11.2010
If you are looking for a cocktail that takes it to the next level, and is bursting with autumn colors. I suggest you turn the music up, find your favorite person, shake a couple of these cocktails and enjoy the evening.
Clementine Negroni Cocktail
Recipe from Bon Appetit
3 clementines, peeled
3 dashes of orange bitters
1/4 cup Hendricks’s Gin (A smooth Scottish cucumber infused gin-worth seeking out) or other good quality gin
1/4 cup Campari
3 tablespoons sweet vermouth
2 clementines, sliced for garnish
Place 3 whole peeled clementines and orange bitters in a cocktail shaker and muddle until the clementines are broken down. Add gin, Campari, and vermouth. Fill shaker 3/4 full with ice. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Strain into two martini glasses, dividing equally. Garnish each with a clementine slice.

We love the Negroni. It's such a fun cocktail to serve, especially for people who haven't heard of it. And you're right – it is bursting with autumn color. I've never used clementines in it. What a great idea. Sam
I LOVE all your cocktails! This one looks beautiful as do all your others. Thanks for the recipe!
This even looks enticing at 8 a.m. (uh oh dangerous thought). Clementines are a garnd idea!

Now THIS is a unique cocktail! I had an unfortunate incident with gin in college (smile), but maybe I'm over it now?? And I saw clementines in the grocery yesterday– looks like I'm going to have to make these 🙂

I am starting to become seriously envious of your liquor collection. I've made several drinks on your posts, and all have been excellent so far. I've got to find orange bitters now. What are orange bitters?

Wow, your site is beautiful! The colors are amazing! I was scrolling through and couldn't figure out which recipe to comment on because they all look great. But since I'm pregnant and can only dream of cocktails like these, it seemed like the perfect one to stop on 🙂 Delicious!
