summer cocktail generator from NYTSummer Cocktails

The New York Times presented another amazing interactive feature back in June where you can mix and match alcohol to generate your ideal summer cocktail (or a drink using whatever’s available in the liquor cabinet).

Summer is almost over and I haven’t tried this yet, but it looks like so much fun I want to have a cocktail night! The one I created here is a Negroni, but a homemade Aviation or a Rosita sounds good too! Make your own concoction and let me know what you like!



1 1/4 ounces gin
1 1/4 ounces Campari
1 1/4 ounces sweet vermouth
Orange twist, for garnish.


Stir all liquid ingredients with ice. Strain into chilled rocks glass filled with ice. Garnish with an orange twist.
Yield: 1 drink.
