The Contessa, a modern creation of John Gertsen, a bartender at Boston’s now-closed Drink, replaces two of the Negroni’s three ingredients: Campari is swapped for the lighter and more orangey Aperol and dry vermouth substitutes for sweet. It’s more like the Negroni’s third cousin than a direct descendant.

Yield: Makes 1 cocktail
Time: 5 minutes
  • 1 oz. Aperol
  • 1 oz. dry vermouth
  • 1 oz. gin
  • Lemon or orange twist, for garnish

Instructions

  1. To a cocktail shaker filled halfway with ice, add the Aperol, vermouth, and gin. Shake until chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled old-fashioned glass filled with ice. Squeeze the lemon twist over the top and drop it into the glass.
