Gin is required for a Negroni Cocktail. A Negroni is equal parts Gin, Campari, and Sweet Vermouth (Basically booze on booze) Anyway, I love this cocktail as an alternative to a Manhattan. The gin I've been using lately is American, Leopold's. http://www.leopoldbros.com/Welcome.html. American Gin is different in the flavor that english Gin. We're always on the lookout for American craft products.
