Negroni Rouge aka a Negroni even haters can like. It’s got kind of a vanilla, sweetish front with just a little bitter astringency on the finish. (hibiscus gin, Aperol, Carpano Antica, grapefruit juice, all equal parts)
A take on Bradstreet’s Blue Ridge Manhattan:
1/2 oz each sweet and dry vermouth
1/2 oz Highland Park Scotch
Splash Laphroig Scotch
Bittercube Blood Orange Bitters
Less Laphroig next time; the smokiness overwhelms the other deliciousness.
