“Dr. Melfi’s Medicine was an opportunity to showcase the complexity of a Negroni without the richness of an all-booze drink,” says Melfi’s owner Brooks Reitz. “I felt like it was a Negroni for beginners without altering any of the ingredients, and simply supplementing. It’s bright, fresh, and slightly less dangerous than your classic Negroni.”
