Valentine’s Day seems to be a day for champagne and while we are in support of popping open some bubbly for any occasion, we do have another suggestion for you. The Negroni is a classic cocktail whose simple proportions of 1:1:1 mean you can whip up cocktails for two without getting distracted from witty conversation and/or meaningful stares. Or you can really scale it up for a Galentine’s celebration!

Campari is an aperitif so is great to sip before a meal, and as a bonus, its reddish hue fits right in to a Valentine’s color palette. And with Minibar Delivery’s shipment and on-demand delivery of wine, beer, liquor, mixers and more, if you don’t currently have the ingredients on hand, there is still time!

Classic Negroni Cocktail
