Oaxacan Negroni a.k.a. Mezcal Negroni

Courtesy Jim Kearns, beverage director, ACME, New York City

In place of gin, Kearns brings in mezcal, alongside a rich style of sweet vermouth and an herbaceous amaro, a hearty alternative to the traditional red bitter. Together, this still drinks like a Negroni, albeit a more robust, moody variation.


1 ounce mezcal
1 ounce Cocchi Dopo Teatro
1 ounce Nardini Amaro
Orange twist, for garnish


In mixing glass, stir all ingredients (except garnish) with ice. Strain into rocks glass, over fresh ice. Garnish with orange twist.
