Note: Orsen Wells after discovering the Negroni while writing a screenplay in Rome, wrote in a correspondence back home thathe had discovered a delightful  Italian Cocktail, “The Negroni.” Welles stated, “It is made of Bitter Campari which is good for the liver, and of Gin which is bad. The two balance each other out.”


The BELLINO NEGRONI


Best Selling Italian Cookbook author  Daniel Bellino Zwicke has been drinking Negroni's since he had his first in Rome, Italy, way back in the Summer of 1985. Daniel loves his Negroni, and it gets him just a bit perturbed at the cocktails over- popularity of late (the past 6 Years), as he feels it cheapnes his beloved Italian Cocktail, as Daniel says, "Now everybody and their Grandmother drinks them" When not so many people drank them, and very few ever even heard of the Negroni at all, it made drinking them, that much more special. Now? Well you can't stop progress as they say.


The BELLINO NEGRONI

Bellino, who knows a thing or two about Negronis, says he likes his own specail way, deviating slightly for what is the standard recipe of equal parts of Gin, Sweet Vermouth, and Campari on the rocks, with a fresh slice of Orange. Daniel says, he likes his Negroni with 1/3 Campari, with the other 2/3 of his Negroni made up of a bit less Gin (less than a third), and a bit more than a third of Sweet Vermouth over ice, with a splash of Club Soda, and of course an Orange slice. That's "The Bellino Negroni" Basta.


PS ... Bellino says "Tucci has the Negroni all Wrong." Shame on you Stanley. In his book, Tucci calls for half of the drink to be made with Gin, and the other half, with equal parts of Campari and Sweet Vermouth. ONG Stanley? This would make a horrible Negroni with so much Gin, overpowering the Sweet Vermouth and Campari.

Bellino says, while it is OK to tweak the Negroni just a bit, such a drastic change with half the cocktail made with Gin, would completely destroy the drink, and turn it totally "out of balance" unlike the Bellino Negroni, with just a minor change (less Gin), making for a superb cocktail.
