How to Make a Negroni, and The Perfect Glass for Serving

Over the last few years, the Negroni has slipped its way from cocktail lists to home bars everywhere. The cocktail is so incredibly famous that it’s often not even actually listed on bar menus, but can be made as readily as a Gin and Tonic.

Made from equal parts of three simple ingredients, the cocktail is not only the perfect way to ring in your 5 o’clock shadow, but also a great starting point for the amateur (home) bartender. Yet despite its easy recipe, the Negroni has somehow remained incredibly elevated.

It lends the same ambiance as smooth, velvet furniture and sets the scene for romantic evenings everywhere. With such an elevated attitude, the drink deserves to be served in a proper glass, and we have just the one to do the job.

The best Negroni Glass

Whenever we’re serving a Negroni, we reach for these Crystal Negroni Glasses. Not only will they go perfectly with all your favorite art-deco, mid-century accents, but they’ll also look just as good on any Ikea coffee table.

The glasses are wide enough to hold one large ice cube (so your drink never gets too watered down) and can fit up to eight ounces. Made with lead-free crystal, they’re an effortless way to elevate your serve, and ensure you’re giving your Negroni the respect it deserves.

Best of all they’re dishwasher safe, so cleanup will be just as easy as mixing up the cocktail.
