Cocktail Colin says:

5/5

The MonteNegroni offers a tantalizing remix of the beloved classic by incorporating amaro, which introduces an intriguing complexity through its herbal underpinnings, resulting in a sophisticated and partially bitter profile that complements the sweetness of red vermouth and the crisp botanicals of dry gin elegantly. This cocktail satiates the palate of modern drinkers by providing a layered experience, balancing between the traditional strong notes of a Negroni and the nuanced, moodier whispers brought on by the amaro, making it a commendable choice for those seeking depth in their drink.
