The Negroni For Beginners

The history of the Negroni is as simple as the recipe. Back in 1919, Count Camillo Negroni – the founder of the drinks namesake – asked his bartender to create a stronger variation of his favorite cocktail – The Americano. Negroni’s bartender, Forsco Scarselli, catered to Negroni’s request by switching out soda water with Gin, as well as garnishing with an orange instead of the traditional lemon. This was the beginning of the ‘Negroni’, a drink still enjoyed by many today. However, for newbies to craft spirits, much like myself, the recipe of equal parts Gin, Vermouth and Campari can be overwhelming. The recipe below is a variation on the traditional, replacing Campari with Aperol. This creates a less intense bitter taste with much sweeter notes.


INGREDIENTS:

30mL Stone Pine Dry Gin

30mL Vermouth

30mL Aperol

1 Orange



UTENSILS NEEDED:

Mixing glass

Bar Spoon

Drinking Glass

Jigger

Strainer

Knife



METHOD:


STEP 1:


Gently run a knife around your orange in order to create a peel.



STEP 2:

Once you have your orange peel, trim around the edges to create a tidier look. Then, wrap up your peel into a tight spiral, gently piercing a skewer through the orange peel, ensuring you pierce through every layer. Your garnish should look something like this;



STEP 3:

Measure 30mL of Stone Pine Gin,

30mL Vermouth

30mL Aperol

and pour directly into a mixing glass with ice.



STEP 4:

Stir mixture with a bar spoon. This ensures a consistent taste while also chilling and diluting the mixture.



STEP 5:

Place a large ice cube into your drinking glass. Once your ice cube is in your glass, proceed to place a strainer over the mixing glass and pour into the drinking glass.



STEP 6:

Top off your drink with your pre-prepared garnish



STEP 7:

Your drink is complete!



STEP 8:
