Get ready to raise your glass!

No matter the season, there's always a great excuse to shake up a cocktail. My husband has recently gotten into mixology and he loves to try new concoctions. We're even researching how to do some interesting infusions with lavender and mint. And yes, we're growing those fresh herbs too.

Cocktails can be tricky though. You have to have the right balance of liquor to mixer, acid to sugar, zing to zang... you get the point. Needless to say, we have turned to Google plenty of times for recipes and inspiration.

Colorado's Most Popular Cocktail

Recently we found a list of the top cocktails in each state. The list was crafted by a clothing site called Pour Moi. I guess the best outfit is accessorized with a great cocktail?

After digging through 100 million Google searches over 12 months, they were able to determine what we are serving up.

Negroni.

Wondering what that is? I've had a few in my day and I can't even tell you off the top of my head what's in it, but I know it's delicious. A classic Negroni features gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth.

It's not for everyone.

Campari can be a little bitter thanks to its clove and cinnamon notes. And while sweet vermouth tends to be more palatable than its regular vermouth brother, it still has some rich flavor to it.

To me, a Negroni tastes subtle yet vibrant and can easily transition into a fall beverage.

It also just looks really pretty in a glass.

Are you a Negroni lover? Feel free to share your recipes with us.

Cheers!
