"In other cities, the Old Fashioned or the Daiquiri is the cocktail that bartenders order to test the skill of their peers. In San Francisco, the benchmark cocktail is the Negroni, a classic that suits the local palate with its tendency toward bitter flavors. Many bartenders claim the Negroni is best served at Bix, despite the unconventional style of the drink--being shaken rather than stirred.

¾ ounce Damrak gin
¾ ounce Campari
¾ sweet vermouth
Orange twist, for garnish

In a cocktail shaker, combine the gin, Campari, vermouth and ice. Shake and strain into a chilled stemmed glass. Garnish with the orange twist and serve."
