5 Must-Try Negroni Variations To Celebrate The Iconic Cocktail

|

Negroni Week has arrived, which means it’s time to celebrate one of the world’s most-popular cocktails. This year, we’re celebrating by stirring up a couple different variations of the Campari-powered drink that we’ve come to love over the years.

One of the best things about the Negroni is its versatility. Whether you’re more of a mezcal fan than a gin fan or are just looking to try something new where you bring Scotch or rum into the mix, variations on the negroni are easy to make and often delicious.

Here are five Negroni Variations we think you simply must try:
