I am especially excited about today’s Fiddler’s Favorites because I am NOT usually a cocktail drinker, but this past summer when we were in Amsterdam, I had the most incredible Negroni and have not had once since.
When I woke up this morning to Austin’s e-mail, it brought back wonderful summer memories and I am very much looking forward to finishing my Friday night studio cyber-class and enjoying his creation!
I first met Austin when he was in Chicago. He has since moved to NYC where he is First Violin in the JACK Quartet, one of the most acclaimed, renowned and respected groups performing today.
Many thanks Austin for bringing us this recipe and brightening this girl's cold, snowy Chicago day !
P.S. A shout out to Alex Sopp, (flute player in Music and the Knights - and most importantly Austin’s girlfriend) for her excellent cinematography skills !
ORANGE MEZCAL NEGRONITweet
- 1.5 ounces mezcal
- 1.5 ounces campari
- 1.5 cointreau
- (couple drops of orange bitters if you got 'em...I didn't)
- Orange peel or wheel as you like it
Campari is an acquired taste.
It's a fine drink; we tried it last night. A classic Negroni is also good, as is a Campari Americano (Campari, sweet vermouth, and soda water; it's the first cocktail mentioned in the James Bond novels, too).
