"There's no rum in the Negroni. No brandy. No tequila. No smoke. No foams. There's no such thing as a Rum Negroni. Nor a Brandy Negroni, Bourbon Negroni or Tequila Negroni. These drinks have their own names, their own place in history, and they don't need to piggy-back on the popularity of the Negroni to gain recognition..."

Six things I have learnt since posting the Negroni article last night;
1. People really don't like it should you make any form of negative comment about Antica Formula, even if you do sing its praises at the same time. Thankfully I deleted the line about it being "Bartender's Ketchup," that would have really got their back up.
2. Some find it difficult to differentiate between opinion and fact. I like opinions, I have my own, but when fact shows our opinion is wrong then...
3. Tegroni, Cuervoni, Negrita, Agavoni, Jalisconi, Mexiconi and Margaroni are just some of the drink names being suggested I should research if I'm attempting to find a reference for a cocktail containing tequila, vermouth and Campari that pre-dates Gary Regan's Rosita that he unearthed in the late 80s. I'm not going to waste our time as these names prove the underlying point I make in the piece, Rosita it is.
4. A lot of people agree with me about the Old Pal and the Boulevardier. The former isn't that good, the latter is superb. I hazard to guess the Old Pal only gets so much attention because it contains a fashionable ingredient in rye whiskey. Save it for your Manhattan. Or Dizzy Sour.
5. A number of people have agreed I used to be adorable. I don't know what happened.
6. Those that clicked horse liked it.
