Test Kitchen Notes

The classic Negroni cocktail gets a warmly spiced winter twist with the addition of a simple mulling spice-infused sweet vermouth, a type of fortified wine. Those toasty flavors complement the floral, fruit-forward notes of NOLET’S Silver Gin—our gin of choice for this cocktail—and are balanced by the bitter orange Campari.

I was super excited to try this but disappointed. Did not taste the mulling spices. Two stars since it was a lovely negroni.
