I made this today (accidentally), In trying to make a Negroni variation, I mixed equal parts Plymouth Gin, Cynar and Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth. After tasting, I decided it needed some Regan's Orange bitters. I shook it with ice (I know) and served it up in a cocktail glass. Tasty.

I love this drink. It's unexpectedly floral, but in a very appetizing way. A great drink for the advanced negroni connoisseur.

The cocktail was updated to reflect the authoritative recipe in the PDT cocktail book. The previous (very similar) recipe was for a smaller less boozy drink: 1:2/3:1/2

From other users

Flavor-wise, more of a Martini variation than a Negroni/Cin-Cyn twin. Gin-forward, dry vermouth (I used Dolin) very prominent, with the Cynar adding viscosity, dark flavor notes, mild sweetness, and bitterness. A dash of oran (4 stars)
Very nice perfect Negroni variation. I was out of nice oranges, so I added a dash of Regans' and used a long swatch of grapefruit.The grapefruit complimented the Cynar nicely. (4 stars)
