Find yourself a rocks glass and, using your jigger to measure, add the mezcal, Campari and vermouth to the glass.

Fill the glass ⅔ with cubed ice.

History

This cocktail, sometimes known as a Negringo, is a common and increasingly popular spin on the Negroni. The robust, smoky flavour of the mezcal with its subtle herbaceous and savoury notes, pairs fantastically with the already bitter and herbal components of this celebrated cocktail, elevating it without overshadowing its iconic character.

Despite its relative popularity in the cocktail world, tracing the origin of this Negroni-twist proves surprisingly difficult. It seems that with mezcal’s renaissance over the last 2 decades, bartenders from all over the world have been struck with the idea of adding this savoury spirit to the notorious amaro cocktail.
