Tradewinds Negroni (Angostura, Sweet Vermouth, and Cointreau Cocktail) Recipe

Vicky Wasik

Justin Elliott of Austin's The Townsend created this spicy variation on the Negroni using equal parts sweet vermouth, Cointreau, and Angostura bitters. That's right: It's a lot of Angostura bitters. The drink is rich, cuttingly bitter, and pleasantly cinnamon-y. I like to soften it just a touch by adding extra sweet vermouth, as called for below.
