“The Negroni is equal parts love letter and little black book—a passionate and personal tribute to one of the world’s most versatile drinks.”
—Brad Thomas Parsons, author of Bitters, Amaro, and Last Call
“This is one of the best books devoted to a single cocktail I’ve read. It’s beautiful and informative, and, most important, the writing is both deeply opinionated and open-minded and welcoming.”
—Michael Ruhlman, author of The Soul of a Chef and Charcuterie
“Illuminating, irresistible, and eminently useful. It's an absolute treat to be among Matt’s students: follow his lead and you're sure to have a hell of a time. You’ll probably learn something, too.”
—Frank Castronovo & Frank Falcinelli

What a trip! This book is a beauty.
It tells the history of the drink loved by italians, the Negroni. A celebration of the drink itself and a guided tour through a number of unorthodox variations of the iconic original recipe (1 part bitter, 1 part sweet vermouth, 1 part gin garnished with orange) and the hotest places to taste them throughout Europe and the USA. Beautiful pictures and old fashioned advertising fill the pages with color and charm. The author even provides a guide of types of glassware and suggested snacks to enjoy this drink.
Is a must have in every mixology library and perfect for display in your home bar.
