Cocktails are the host best friends

I love Negroni Cocktail. It is easy to make. Its bitter-sweet taste is excellent, and people enjoy drinking it.  

Whenever I’m hosting, I like to serve my guests cocktails. Cocktails are great as appetizers; the alcohol makes everybody happy, relaxed, and ready to eat.

So if you want to get your party started, serve your guests with blood oranges Negroni.

What is a Negroni cocktail?

The classic Negroni is dry gin, red Vermouth, and bitters garnished with orange.

The bitters are usually Campari and the Vermouth commonly used is Martini (though this is the element most frequently and advisedly played with). 


No one knows who exactly invented the Negroni. The most widely reported version of this drink’s origin was created in 1919 at Caffe Casoni in Florence, Italy. Legend tells that Count Camillo Negroni asked his friend, bartender Forsco Scarselli, to strengthen his favorite cocktail – the Americano – by replacing the soda water with gin.

Blood oranges

In this recipe I have used blood oranges. The color of the blood oranges suits the cocktail perfectly and adds a fresh orange taste. 

If you can’t get any blood oranges, you can replace them with regular orange juice.

Don’t forget to keep an orange or two for the garnish of the cocktail.
