Cocktail: How to make the perfect Negroni

With its famous ratio of 1:1:1, the Negroni is a cocktail recipe that’s difficult to bungle! However, the experts here at Craft Gin Club have got a few tips on how to perfect this delicious drink.

Negroni

NEGRONI

25ml dry gin
25ml Campari
25ml sweet vermouth
Orange zest, to garnish

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, stir your ingredients together until blended well. Strain into a short glass on the rocks, or ideally over a large sphere of ice, and garnish with a curl of orange zest.

We love the Negroni as an aperitif - it pairs brilliantly with savoury snacks.

Craft Gin Club tip: Invest in good vermouth. In a cocktail like this, with equal parts of all of its ingredients, you don’t want to ruin the flavours by using your beautiful craft gin, classic Campari and then spoiling it with a sub-par vermouth! Cinzano Rosso, Martini Rossa or Carpano Antica are safe bets to guarantee delicious results.
