What we're drinking tonight

I’m at the end of my rope here, people. If the sun isn’t here to stay soon, I’m slipping into tequila-induced hibernation mode and enlisting Prince Charming to rouse me in mid-June. I figure a few tasty tequila-based Negronis should kick off my epic nap with dreams of Mexican sunshine but, for the record, many other classic gin cocktails taste equally lovely when mixed with blanco tequila – like the Last Word, the Martinez and the South Side.

  • 1 oz Tromba blanco
  • 1 oz Campari
  • 1 oz sweet vermouth like Carpano Classico
  • 2 dashes orange, grapefruit or chocolate bitters (optional)

Stir all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Strain into a rocks glass over a large ice cube. Garnish with a grapefruit twist. Drink. Repeat. Slumber.
