Hazelnut Negroni

My seasonal twist on the Negroni. Traditional it consists of equal measures of Campari, Red vermouth and gin. I actually came upon this version during lockdown one evening when I felt like a Negroni and had run out of gin, due to limiting shopping trips i thought I’d add a splash of Frangelico. It was heavenly. It is strange that this drink conjures tastes of chocolate orange to me even though it doesn’t contain chocolate whatsoever. I believe it comes from the butter hazelnut flavours imparted by Frangelico. Frangelico is a hazelnut liquor from Italy that has a warm buttery hazelnut flavour. I think of it as Nutella in liquor form. It works so well in desserts or stirred through a hot chocolate for a cosy nightcap.
