Negroni

 

Definitely for a more mature palate – the Negroni is an intense, yet sublime cocktail. The bitterness of the Campari and earthiness of the vermouth prevail, yet the botanicals of the gin add a welcomed freshness along with a hint of sweetness from the orange. Those who sample a Negroni tend to sit in two camps; you either love it or you hate it!  It’s an acquired taste. Its complex and rich flavour can be off-putting for some, but in the end, its distinct character has led it to be one of the world’s most enjoyed cocktails.

What you’ll need:

 

·      Your Rusty Barrel cocktail shaker set

·      25ml of your preferred gin

·      25ml of sweet vermouth

·      25ml of Campari

·      Express orange peel

·      Ice

Preferred glass:

Rocks

Process:

Top Tip:

Ideally use a London Dry Gin and the best quality Sweet Vermouth you can afford. Campari is essential and should never be substituted.

1.     Add the gin, sweet vermouth, Campari and ice to your glass

2.     Gently stir.

3.     Add the express orange peel .
