By the way in my experience, a Negroni (which is what Adam George described above) can be a bit heavy-feeling if just built in the glass. If you want it to be a bit lighter in texture, shaking is not out of the question

Negroni was really nice guys, surprisingly it tasted quite similar to just campari with grapefruit juice, but stronger and sweeter. I really liked, and had 2 :laugh: I made one for the girlfriend too, but she said it tastes like eating a flower and hated it...

Any ideas what I could make for her? She likes sweet cocktails. Going to try this limoncello with hazelnut liqueur, lemon juice, egg white and sugar syrup drink

Sounds diabetic.

Try starting with gin as a base and slowly building up with hazlenut and/or lemoncello with lemon juice to balance. Keep trying little tastes on a spoon before adding egg white and ice and shaking very hard. Don't even tell her you're putting egg in as girls get all funny about this.

I'm glad you like the Negroni, though. They are incredibly morish. I don't mind mine built as I'm a gin and Campari fiend, however, for my guests I throw the ingredients from tin to tin to add some dilution and aeration.
