Help fix my Negroni

jaba | Feb 11, 2013 06:14 AM

Having discovered the beauty of the Negroni over the last year, I decided to attempt to make one at home.
My proportions:
1 part Citadelle Gin
1 part Luxardo Bitter (a little cheaper than Campari and I have seen plenty of recommendations that this makes a worthy substitute)
1 part Vya Sweet Vermouth
Orange peel

The result was *good* but didn't have the bracing, but wonderfully balanced, bitterness of the Negronis that I've loved elsewhere. Any thoughts on changing my proportions? I'm thinking about dialing back the Vermouth but would that throw things out of balance?

Thanks!
