Negroni week twists

Post by Gall4185 » Fri Jun 10, 2016 11:19 am

Since it's Negroni week,I thought i'd share a few variations on the theme. As I'm a UK resident I'll be working in millilitres,but I'll try to give rough values in ounces for those on the wrong side of the pond

First up we'll start with the Classic,started by an Italian gent who wanted more booze in his Americano highball

30ml/1oz Gin
30ml/1oz Campari
30ml/1oz Sweet vermouth
(I also recommend a dash of grapefruit or orange bitters)
Orange wedge fr garnish

Next up,The Brutally Hammered Negroni

175ml/6oz Red Wine (I recommend Malbec)
30ml/1oz Gin
30ml/1oz Campari


dash chocolate bitters

Third and final,we'll go with the Spiced Negroni

30ml/1oz Gin
30ml/1oz Ancho Reyes
30ml/1oz Martini Rosato vermouth
couple of dashes of Dr Adam's Spanish Bitters
Lime wedge & olive for garnish

I figured combining a negroni with a brutal hammer would be suitable for here ;)

I tried to upload the pic you posted on my photobucket account to make it visible for everyone but it failed.
Am I allowed to download it and paste it in here?

Also that campari thing looks like candy, or jello shots

Of course,feel free to share it. I tried to attach it here but clearly that failed. the downside of posting at work means I'm often rushed

Instagram doesn`t allow it. Too bad. But go on with good drunk postings.
Cheers

I like playing mad scientist and sharing my efforts with fellow drunkards. There's a late night bar which I frequent,and the staff get occasional "Boomerang" drinks brought round. Gives them something to look forward to at the end of the shift,lets me share recipes and helps the bartender community in Aberdeen

(A boomerang drink is a premixed cocktail stored in a bottle and delivered to another venue as a present to the bartenders. Started in NYC and has spread to a few other areas.)
