Clementine negroni: Negroni di Clementina

Well nothing says Christmas like a Negroni with a seasonal fruit; in this case Clementines. Serve just one or two servings of these drinks per person in a Martini glass with a slice of Clementine. More than two per person will probably lead to undesirable consequences.

Makes 2 to 3 servings.

Ingredients and Directions:

  • 3 clementines, peeled
  • 3 dashes of orange bitters
  • 1/4 cup high quality Gin
  • 1/4 cup Campari
  • 3 tablespoons sweet vermouth
  • Ice cubes
  • 2 clementine slices (for garnish)

Special equipment: Cocktail shaker

Place 3 whole peeled clementines and orange bitters in cocktail shaker and muddle until clementines are broken down. Add gin, Campari, and vermouth. Fill shaker 3/4th full with ice. Shake vigorously 30 seconds. Strain into 2 Martini glasses, dividing equally. Garnish each with a floating clementine slice.
