If there's a cocktail that's taken the world by storm in recent years, it's the Negroni. The world is behind the times - you and I have known, since we learned what good meant, that if there was one cocktail to start the evening off well or finish it off definitively, it's the Negroni.
This is our classic, which we have named the Night Negroni (as we have one a tad more suited for daytime drinking), made with all Italian ingredients (1/3 each of bitters, sweet vermouth, and gin, all from Antica Distilleria Quaglia, in Turin) and garnished simply with a slice of orange.
We're offering it 2 ways.
For 2, we'll send over 200ml of the deliciously wicked concoction which serves 2, plus an orange, which you can slice, or make one of those fancy curls of zest if you're the type. Chill it well before serving, and serve on the rocks or not. We'll leave that bit up to you.
For the Night Negroni Kit, we'll send over a bottle (70cl) of gin, and a litre each of bitters and vermouth. You will have more bitters and vermouth than you need. This will necessitate the purchase of more gin, of course. But then you will have leftover gin, and need to buy more bitters and vermouth. What a palaver!
You don't need any fancy cocktail kit to make this, just a spoon. Mix 25ml of each with ice and stir until the volume has doubled. Top up with more ice and garnish with a slice of orange. What could be simpler. The kit will make 28 Negroni.
