Not Quite So Original

Here I thought I was being so creative, inventing a “White Negroni”. No surprise, I came to find after the fact that there are several others out there. Regardless, I was pretty happy how this came out, so I thought I’d share!

Roughly following the original format of the Negroni, I used equal parts Gin, Lillet Blanc and Saler’s Gentian. The Lillet takes the place of sweet vermouth, and the Gentian adds the bitterness in the place of Campari. I also added a dash of orange bitters to kick up the bitterness just a bit more.

But not bad at all!

The gentian liqueur and gin take the front stage on this drink, and the Lillet brings an undertone of orange and slight sweetness, alongside the orange bitters.

I found this cocktail to be lighter than the original Negroni, but still has the bitter backbone and structure you’d expect in a Negroni-inspired drink. It’s a great option for the summertime when you’re looking for a Negroni but feel like something just a touch lighter.
