Fiddler's Favorite Recipes Episode 12: Austin Wulliman's Orange Mezcal Negroni Recipe

April 17, 2020, 6:32 PM · 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.

Austin Wulliman and Negroni

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 !

  • 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
