Meet the Neroli Cocktail—a Playful Twist on a Negroni

I’m a Campari fan and a gin aficionado, so the Negroni (equal parts gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth) is one of my all-time favorite cocktails. I got started on it early in my drinking career, so it also offers a bit of nostalgia for me. I’ve found that while many find Campari too bitter for their tastes, those who are fans are a little die-hard like me. If you fall into the latter camp, I have a great cocktail recipe for you today. It comes courtesy of author and food blogger Claire Thomas of The Kitchy Kitchen, who was inspired by L.A. restaurateur Jason Neroni. “My favorite moment of his evil genius is in the form of The Neroni, a playful twist on a Negroni, with the addition of pistachio-infused gin,” she says. “I took his Neroni and twisted it one step further, making a Neroli—the common name for orange blossom.” Intrigued yet? Read on for the recipe.
