Welcome one and all to #NegroniWeek! This is perhaps the best week of the whole year as far as cocktails go because NEGRONIS ALL WEEK Y’ALL! Negroni Week is put on by Campari and Imbibe Magazine as a charity drive for bars and restaurants to participate in. You can read all about it here.
Now, if you haven’t read my post from May 31st about how I like to make and bottle my Negroni, read it now and then return here. Did you read it? Good. Did you not read it? Hmmmmmm.
The Saint Negroni is actually a cocktail I came up with during last year’s #NegroniWeek whilst I was mixing Bottled Negroni with different liqueurs. The elderflower flavour from St-Germain pairs so well with the Bitter, Orange and Gin flavours of Negroni that I’m drinking the Saint Negroni again this year. Plus this drink is a really bright and cheery way to start #NegroniWeek.
- 2 1/2 oz Bottled Negroni
- 3/4 oz St-Germain
- 2 dashes of Scrappy’s Grapefruit Bitters
- Garnish: Orange Peel rose
Combine ingredients over ice and stir. Strain into chilled double Rocks glass. Garnish with Orange Peel rose.
I hope y’all have a fabulous time making up tasty Negroni variations of your own! Cheers!
