101 Best New Cocktails: Norwegian Negroni by Adam Harness, Cafe Maude, Minneapolis, MN
Adapted from a recipe by Adam Harness, Cafe Maude, Minneapolis, MN.
“A very light and herbal/citrus taste, perfect for a before dinner libation. Due to the fact that many Minnesotans are of Norwegian heritage, I thought this would be a good starter for someone who wants to experience a craft cocktail.” Adam Harness.
