The Best Non-Alcoholic Negroni

Easy to make, intensely flavored, and bracingly bitter, the Negroni has won the hearts of drinkers everywhere.

The classic cocktail is said to have been invented by the Italian Count Camillo Negroni in Florence in the early 1900s. He ordered his favorite drink, the Americano—a highball made with Campari, sweet vermouth, and soda water—and requested the bartender make it stronger by replacing the soda with gin. That one small tweak cemented the Count as inventor of one of the most popular cocktails in the world, right alongside classics like the Martini and Old Fashioned.

We've made countless variations of this classic cocktail in pursuit of what we believe to be the absolute best non-alcoholic Negroni on the planet. The only change to the classic formula is the addition of our Orange and Aromatic bitters, which work in punching up the botanical and bitter elements a bit.

Specific zero proof spirits are called for here—Monday Gin, Lyre's Aperitif Rosso, and Giffard Aperitif Syrup—substitute them if you must, but this is the recipe we hang our hat on. Do you have a favorite alcohol-free Negroni recipe? Let us know in the comments!

    This is the best! Negroni was my favorite cocktail before I quit drinking, and fortunately the non-alcoholic version hits the spot. This recipe is perfect.
