"I think the Negroni is the best drink ever invented," says Brent Butler, the bar manager at West of Pecos in San Francisco. "If you're going to know one drink, this should be it." This variation uses Zucca Amaro instead of Campari, and mezcal instead of gin.

Bitter Truth mole bitters are available online.
