Bruto Negroni Recipe

This variation on a classic Negroni features Bruto Americano.

With an extra amount of bitterness, Bruto is a bitter aperitivo liqueur and replaces the traditional Campari in this Negroni recipe.

Notes include bitterness from gentian root, citrus from Seville oranges and a woodsy flavour from balsam fir and Cascara sagrada (bark from the California buckthorn). If you like a dry and bitter Negroni, this might be the perfect recipe for you.


1 oz Gin
1 oz Bruto Americano
1 oz Dry Vermouth


Stir all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled glass. Add a few large ice cubes and garnish with a slice of grapefruit and sprig of rosemary.

You can easily batch this recipe and store it in the fridge. A 16 oz mason jar will hold up to 5 drinks.
