i++ sky high negroni: Seth Weinberg of Bourbon Steak Nashville loves a classic Italian Negroni, but “It requires some pre-planning; buy a few small screw-top vial bottles that can be found on Amazon.” Then, add equal parts (usually 1oz will do the trick) Campari, Gin, and Sweet Vermouth. We do note that drinking your own liquor on flights is not allowed, so proceed with caution
