What Is a Negroni?

You might have heard about it: the Negroni. It might sound familiar, but what exactly is it?

The Negroni is a famous Italian cocktail that contains gin, red vermouth, and Campari. The Italian Aperitivo is traditionally garnished with a slice of orange or an orange peel. 

In this recipe, we’ve substituted the Campari for another classic Italian drink: Aperol. Picture yourself in Milan on a warm summer day, sipping on this drink!

FAQ About Aperol Negroni

Can you use Aperol in a Negroni?

Yes, you can use Aperol instead of Campari, and this recipe proves it! It makes the Negroni a bit lighter in both color and alcohol content. 

What is the difference between Aperol and Campari?

Aperol and Campari are both Italian aperitifs, and they taste and smell quite similar. However, Aperol has a much lower alcohol content compared to Campari: 11% vs. 20.5-28%. 

Also, Aperol is less bitter in taste than Campari. That’s why we find Aperol a worthy substitute for Campari!

What is the best gin for a Negroni?

We believe that good-quality gin drastically improves the quality of a cocktail. For our Aperol Negroni, we used Hendricks gin, and I have to say it tastes great! 

What does an Aperol Negroni taste like?

The Aperol Negroni is a perfect blend of exciting tastes. The sweet and spicy flavor of vermouth complements Aperol’s bittersweet taste, and the gin makes this a spunky drink. The aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Aperol Negroni Ingredients

As mentioned above, the traditional Negroni consists of a few key ingredients. In this Aperol Negroni, we have left out the Campari and replaced it with Aperol. Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make this drink:

  • Gin. To make the perfect Negroni, we recommend you use a quality gin, such as Hendricks.
  • Sweet vermouth. Using sweet, red vermouth gives your drink a more robust and richer taste.
  • Aperol. We gave our own little twist to this drink by adding Aperol instead of Campari. We can’t choose which one we like more, let us know!
  • Orange twist or slice for garnish. Feel like a professional bartender by decorating the glass with an orange twist or slice.
  • Ice

How to make an Aperol Negroni

This Aperol Negroni is one of best Aperol recipes, and here’s how to make it!

Making this Italian cocktail is dead simple! Grab a cocktail glass and fill it with ice. Technically any glass will do, but this drink looks much better in a tumbler glass. 

Pour the gin, vermouth, and Aperol into the glass and stir well. Finally, add the orange slice or twist to garnish.

Simple as that. Cheers, or as the Italians say: Saluti!
