Negroni Bianco

By , from the Jacob Grier collection
Serves 1

Introduction

This cocktail comes from Douglas Derrick, head barman at the acclaimed Portland Italian restaurant Nostrana. He uses three different tonic wines in this concoction. There’s the familiar Lillet, the more bitter Cocchi Americano from Italy, and Bonal, a French aperitif flavored with quinine and gentian. It’s a lot of flavors in one glass, but it tastes great.

Ingredients

oz. gin (Doug suggests Plymouth)
½ oz. Cocchi Americano
½ oz. Lillet Blanc
8 drops ginger extraction (see Note)
~ Bonal rinse
~ Orange twist, for garnish

Steps

  1. Stir the first four ingredients with ice and strain into a Bonal-rinsed cocktail glass, then garnish with an orange twist.

Notes

To make the ginger extraction, juice fresh ginger and preserve the liquid with grain alcohol (such as Everclear) at about 5 percent of the juice’s volume.
