@wrenpile Thanks. I did look at the martini glass version of a Negroni. Variously a Valentino or Camparinette. 50ml gin, 15ml campari and 15ml red Vermouth.

But in the end just went for the old standby, Manhattan.

@jbond There are some who believe a Negroni is made of equal parts of the members of the trinity.

@wrenpile It is a wonderful drink. Which contains huge amounts of sugar.

@jbond Maybe so, but I’ll never forget the time when 12-year-old me took a swig of Campari thinking it was what, cherry soda or something? I spat out the bitter liquid involuntarily. Fortunately, we were outdoors.
