|The NEGRONI is best served cold, and should definitely not
be limited to one glass at a sitting. Some will garnish the NEGRONI with
various fruits like oranges, lemons, or limes to deceive themselves into
thinking they are warding-off scurvy. The NEGRONI has a long history going back to Count Camillo Negroni de Firenze, but its inspiration for the NWC is that it was the official beverage of the Italian Futurists -- once again, you don't have to be Italian, just a Futurist!
The Negroni di Benedetto is the centerpiece for deliberations by the Sanctum Sanctorum of the Norbert Wiener Center. It refines the Count's inspiration by using the following ingredients: rye based Belvedere vodka , Marsala dolce, and Aperol. The Polish Belvedere reminds one of the glorious vision of the Duomo from Forte Belvedere in Firenze, the Sicilian Marsala is the passion for mathematics, and the Aperol is our sunrise for the future through the highspirited airs of the Alps.
