ta. cocktail club: Negroni

Welcome to the ta. cocktail club.

If fighting for space at a fully booked pub doesn't take your fancy, you want to put your feet up at home or have some friends heading round to hang (in the garden) then let us guide you with some cocktail recipes to suit. This month we show you how to make a true gin classic, the Negroni.

According to legend, the story goes like this: Count Camillo Negroni was at Caffe Casoni in Florence, Italy in 1919. Whilst he was there he asked his friend, bartender Forsco Scarselli, to strengthen his favourite cocktail, The Americano, by replacing the soda water with gin. Forsco added an orange garnish, rather than the lemon you'd usually get with an Americano, and the drink took off. It didn't take long before everybody was coming into the bar for a 'Negroni'. Needless to say the most important factor in any Negroni is the gin that you use, and we'd highly recommend the East London Liquor Co. brighter gin with it's coriander, Darjeeling tea and pink grapefruit peel notes.

You'll Need:

30ml East London Co. brighter gin (or equivalent)
30ml Martini Rosso
30ml Campari
Lots of Ice
1x large ice cube for serving
1x orange
1x cocktail stirring jug (or a mixing jug from the kitchen!)
1x stirring spoon
1x cocktail strainer
1x rocks glass (or equivalent)


Instructions:

1. Place lots of ice into your stirring jug

2. Add 30ml each of gin, Martini Rosso & Campari

3. Stir in your jug until chilled (should take a couple of minutes)

4. Add a large cube of ice into your rocks glass, and then, using the cocktail strainer, pour your Negroni into your glass.

5. Add orange peel to your drink to garnish
