Thank you so much Greg for the wonderful article!
“Sometimes, classic cocktails taste best at restaurants that represent the cuisine they were born from, and nothing could be tastier than an Italian bitter cocktail at Newport Beach’s Bello. Sure the Negroni is an easy three-ingredient drink boasting (usually) Campari, gin, and sweet Vermouth, but there is beauty in the details. Bello’s secret lies in its ice: a different crush with various shapes and sizes ensures the drink dilutes properly from start to finish. Smaller chunks melt when the drink is delivered, larger chunks keep the drink cold until the last drop … ah, who are we kidding … until your next Negroni.”
