I add a similar drink on Princess Cruises called a Bombay Rose Martini. It was (is) fantastic! If you like Campari and you like martinis, this is the one!

I spent 7 years in Italy, specifically in Rome, for graduate study. My new Italian friends were anxious to get me to try one of their native drinks, but the unusual combination of ingredients put me off at first. I eventually tried it and have loved Negronis ever since! My friends and I usually add about 1.5 ounces of gin since the campari and sweet vermouth tend to cancel each other in terms of sharpness vs. sweetness. ONE WARNING: These drinks are 100% alcohol. Be careful!

it's a classic and this is my favorite cocktail. i however, skip the lemon zest and squeze a large wedge of orange (navel preferred) and sink the orange peel and all in to my glass. i also place ice in my glass first just to extend the pleasure of sipping something so intoxicating! i will also say, it is an acquired taste, like scotch or whiskey. enjoy!
