Cast Your Vote for the Best Beefeater Gin Negroni in SF

It's summertime in SF, which means you're going to be craving refreshing cocktails more so than ever! We've been particularly keen on negroni lately, a cocktail traditionally made by mixing one part gin, one part vermouth rosso, and one part Campari, garnished with an orange peel (for those unfamiliar).

In spirit of Negroni Week 2014 we've rounded up some of the best mixologists in the city to create the ultimate Beefeater Gin Negroni.
