Cocktail of the Week: French Negroni

There's nothing Queen Bee love more than a delicious Negroni — and this week's cocktail, the French Negroni, is a stunning, yet simple, take on the original. It's the perfect cocktail for any occasion! And with just three ingredients, it's simple to stock your home bar with everything you need to make round after round for many happy hours to come.


  • 2 oz. Cognac
  • 1.25 oz. Campari
  • 1.25 oz. Red Vermouth


  1. Add all ingredients to a beaker and top with ice. Stir until chilled.
  2. Add large ice cube or sphere to a cocktail glass and strain beaker contents overtop.
  3. Garnish with an orange peel and enjoy!

Sure, a glass of wine or a beer is a nice way to unwind – but every now and then, you deserve a happy hour that's a little more...hmmm. What's the word? Refined! Kelly Sparks of Queen Bee Mixology is graciously sharing a new cocktail with us every week, just in time for Happy Hour.
