Anthony Bourdain with another chef smiling


The Classic Cocktail Anthony Bourdain Loved
Anthony Bourdain, known for his influence in the culinary world, had a deep affinity for the Negroni, despite disliking its individual components.
"It's three liquors that I'm not particularly interested in ... But put them together with a slice of orange. It works," Bourdain told Barron's of the classic Italian cocktail.
In a segment for “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” Bourdain shared his method for creating a Negroni, saying, "Pretty much any chimpanzee could make this drink."
Over heaping handfuls of ice, Bourdain fills 1/3 of the glass with Campari, then Bombay Sapphire Gin for the next 1/3, and tops the final 1/3 with sweet vermouth.
"You're thinking, 'That doesn't sound good to me,' and in fact, I don't really like any of these things by themselves. But together, oh yes," Bourdain says, adding an orange slice.
As he stirs the drink, Bourdain says,"I would recommend a dosage of two of these, maximum. Cause after three, it's, 'Where'd my pants go? And who the hell are you?' Enjoy."
