Negroni riffs have taken over the bar scene in recent years. It was only a matter of time before the bitter classic got the heat treatment. The Spicy Negroni does not disappoint. In this twist by Erin Cusick of Brooklyn’s Clover Club, mezcal adds smoke, chile liqueur and spicy bitters give heat while the traditional Campari and sweet vermouth bring the familiar Negroni flavors. The Spicy Negroni challenges the concept that spicy drinks are all heat and no flavor.
