Another Negroni


I ran out of sweet vermouth so I looked around the cabinet for another vermouth type fortified wine and spotted the Lillet Rouge.  Somewhere I have seen a “Negroni” made with Aperol and Lillet Branc so I figured “why not.”  Anyway, it is a bit darker and has a slightly heavier flavor.  I prefer a Negroni with sweet vermouth, but this isn’t bad!IMAG0353
