WIP Cocktail Club: a Winter Negroni perfect for Valentine's Day

Roses are red,

Violets are blue,

I want to stay in

And drink negronis with you.

To be fair, this cocktail is equally good on any other day, but it's a great one for Valentine's evening - or a night with friends instead.  It takes moments to make, and is gloriously warming and, undeniably, strong.  Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
