Negroni week just passed and you’re itching to learn how to make one of your own. You’ve tried several inspired versions, been to a handful of bars, but there’s something about doing it yourself. Here, we have one of menswear’s most prominent names presenting a decadent twist from their own restaurant in New York. If you haven’t quite guessed it, the cocktail is named after the iconic film Armani famously outfitted, American Gigolo. Who knows? It might also get you a step closer to becoming Richard Gere.

⅓ oz. Frangelico
3 drops chocolate bitters
