Cheer on the Chiefs with a Pomegranate Negroni

Tomorrow is the big day when the Chiefs take on the Tampa Bay Bucs to see if they can #RunItBack.  We told you last week that we are bringing red cocktails and treats to you for the month of February to celebrate the month of love.  It just so happens that the team we LOVE has red jerseys! (Hey! Love doesn’t always have to be romantic love.)

Our last post was about the delicious Pomegranate Martini, and this week Craig wanted us to post a more manly drink, so we bring you the Pomegranate Negroni.  Negroni’s are a famously Italian cocktail that is one of Craig’s most favorite.

Typically a Negroni is made with gin, a bitter and vermouth.  This recipe replaces the vermouth for the fruity flavor of pomegranate juice.  We tried the recipe with vermouth and Craig felt like the pomegranate juice and vermouth were not compatible.
