Not All Negronis Are Red

An Updated and Very Clear Take on the Original

If there are two things you know with absolute certainty, it’s that skies are blue and Negronis are red.

So you may want to sit down for this.

Because this is the White Negroni, a spring-y take on the original that’s being served at Supper, the restaurant inside San Antonio’s old Pearl brewery turned Hotel Emma.

It’s still got that traditional gin base, but instead of sweet vermouth they’re opting for a bianco. And rather than Campari, you’ve got Cocchi Americano, a still-Italian aperitif with a bittersweet bite. So the flavor profile is familiar, which means this version gets the job done while managing to look like a glass of water.

Sometimes it’s good to commit a little blasphemy.

White Negroni

1 oz Broker’s Gin
1 oz Cocchi Americano
1 oz Contratto Vermouth Bianco
2 dashes orange bitters

Add all ingredients to a mixing glass with ice and stir until cold. Strain into a rocks glass with fresh ice and garnish with a dehydrated orange wheel.
