Made with gin, sweet vermouth and Campari, Clint Roger's version of the Negroni has all the usual suspects. But it's the final flourish that separates it from all others: orange sorbet scooped on top. The move may sound like heresy to some, but it acts as ballast to the classic's signature bitterness.
1¼ ounces gin, preferably Northshore Distiller's Gin No. 6
1 ounce sweet vermouth, preferably Punt e Mes
1 ounce Campari
Sprig thyme, for garnish
1 small scoop orange sorbet, for garnish
In a Collins glass filled with ice, add the gin, vermouth and Campari. Top with club soda, leaving at least half an inch of space. Stir until combined and garnish with the thyme and the orange sorbet. Serve.
