For Negroni Week we’ve created 5 interesting twists on this all time classic gin cocktail.
An homage to the beautiful, bittersweet drink, June 6-12 2016 is Negroni Week! Negroni Week was initially launched in 2013 by Imbibe and Campari to celebrate the cocktail and raise money in its name.
The classic Negroni, one part each of sweet vermouth, campari and gin is an incredible combination. That said, it’s always fun to have a bit of a play around and if ever a twist on the classic were to have it’s moment in the sun, it’s during Negroni Week!
Created by one of Gin Festival's own bartenders, specifically for Porter’s Gin, Little Deer Negroni is a delightfully gentle and smooth Negroni, that swaps out Campari for Manzanilla Sherry and unites both those that love Negronis and those who aren’t usually the biggest fan.
Add all 3 ingredients to an ice-filled glass and stir thoroughly.
Garnish with an orange twist.
Rhubarb is the ingredient of the moment, adding a perfectly sweet and tart element to any drink. Here, it’s like a sour, fruity sherbert giving the Negroni an exciting kick whilst maintaining the classic profile of Rutte Dry Gin.
Stir the ingredients together over ice.
Twist a piece of orange peel over the mixture then discard it.
Negroni and sparkling wine? We can almost hear your shock, but trust us, it works. The soft, sweetness of the spumante creates a long and refreshing drink, perfectly set off by a good London Dry Gin like EELC London Dry.
Stir together the gin, Campari and Martini with some ice.
Top up with Spumante and garnish with an orange twist.
As the name suggests, this is a lighter, softer version of a Negroni. The Lillet Blanc works with Portobello Road Gin to create a gentle, floral drink that's perfect for sipping in a summer garden.
To make it add all the ingredients to an ice-filled glass, stir thoroughly and garnish with a sprig of tarragon.
Now, don’t complain too much at the addition of a non-gin cocktail here, we know it’s approaching blasphemy but a good mezcal, really, really works well with the bittersweet Campari and smooth, aromatic vermouth!
Add all the ingredients to an ice filled glass, stir thoroughly then garnish with an orange twist.
