We’ve made it all the way to Le Negroni Week-end, so I feel like we should be getting funky with our recipes. Therefore we aren’t using that Bottled Negroni which was discussed in a post from May 31st. We’re getting out of the box, and I mean WAAAAAY out of the box.
The BanaNegroni reminds me a lot of a drink you’d find at Sother Teague’s Amor y Amargo. Hell, it especially reminds me of one of his drinks that I included in a Spring Cocktails with Jägermeister post called Precision Timepiece. Even though there is no mention of the word “Negroni” anywhere in the description of Precision Timepiece, it’s totally in the Negroni format. Three main ingredients, in a Rocks glass with some rocks, stirred, citrus peel. So it is with BanaNegroni.
- 1 1/2 oz Espolón Reposado Tequila
- 3/4 oz Amaro CioCiaro
- 1/2 oz Giffard Banane du Bresil
- 1 dash Dale Degroff’s Pimento Bitters
- Garnish: Orange Peel
Combine ingredients over ice and stir. Strain into double Rocks glass with ice. Express Orange Peel and garnish.
I really hope you like this one cause it’s wild, very intensely flavoured, and tasty. I also hope it gets your creative juices flowing. Would love to see some variations on this one!
Cheers to y’all and all your #NegroniWeek cocktails!
