For most of my life, I hated ginger. I was convinced I was allergic to it. Once, while near-violently seasick on a boating trip in Hawaii, a crewmember offered me a ginger candy to calm my seasickness. In a way, it worked: my near-violence turned quickly ultra-violent and the poor ship's toilet probably suffers from PTSD to this day.

A year or so ago, something inexplicable happened and I cannot pinpoint the moment in time. Now, I sit happily scoffing down pickled ginger like candy at the sushi bar. Forget the sushi, give me the sweet, sour, and spicy pickled ginger. 

Bored of my usual negroni variants, I searched for an appealing way to combine my love of negronis with the newfound passion for ginger. This led me to a recipe on the Domain de Canton website.

Jackpot.

The recipe is stupidly straightforward. Equal parts Domaine de Canton, Campari, and Gin.

But I'll be damned if it isn't fucking delicious.
