Spiced Rum Negroni recipe

A negroni is a rock-solid recipe: equal parts gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. So, why mess with it like we do here, by swapping gin for Cardinal Spirits Lake House Spiced Rum? The warming, spicy finish of spiced rum against the bitterness of Campari is a game changer. Once you have this spiced rum negroni, you might never go back to the classic version. Sorry, not sorry.


By Alyvia Cain of Cardinal Spirits

1 ounce Cardinal Spirits Lake House Spiced Rum
1 ounce Campari
1 ounce sweet vermouth
Wide strip of orange peel, for garnish

Add all ingredients except orange peel to a mixing glass, then add ice and stir for 20 seconds. Strain over a big ice cube in rocks glass. Express the oils from an orange peel by pinching it peel-side down over the glass, then drop the peel in the glass to garnish.
