This recipe appears in:Classic Drinks: If You Like Negronis, Try the Quill
This light, refreshing twist on the Quill takes its cues from the Americano and Negroni Spagliato. A little absinthe is excellent with bubbly. I like to make this with Cocchi Rosa, but you can also substitute sweet vermouth.
- 1 ounce Campari
- 1 ounce Cocchi Rosa or sweet vermouth
- 1/4 ounce absinthe
- 1 ounce chilled club soda
- 2 ounces chilled Prosecco
- Garnish: orange twist
Fill a highball glass with ice. Add Campari, sweet vermouth and absinthe. Stir to mix, about 10 seconds.
Top with club soda and Prosecco. Stir gently and garnish with orange twist.
