This week I am experimenting with a bunch of flavors including maple, apple, and pumpkin. I love negroni’s because they are the perfect cocktail for all occasions. Today I have made a fall version and mixed it up with maple and garnished it with bacon. Maple and bacon go so well together that you could almost call this the “Breakfast Negroni or Breaky Negroni” as my Aussie friends love to say. I love negroni’s because it is a simple cocktail to make at home and they are so boozy. Have you tried a specific riff on the classic negroni? I would love to hear your variations! Cheers to Negroni’s and Fall!
