Negroni Week

We have celebrated Negroni week for the last few years by not only spreading the word about Negroni Week, but also making our own special versions of the Negroni! This year we decided to make a new spin on the classic Negroni by infusing the components with fresh summer strawberries to make a Strawberry Negroni!

Classic Negroni

The basic Negroni is a simple recipe made with just three spirits, gin, vermouth and Campari. These are all mixed together in even parts. The Negroni is a cocktail with a long history dating back to the early 1900’s. It’s first mentioned in Florence, Italy. A gentlemen by the name of Count Camillo Negroni asked a bartender to liven up his favorite cocktail. It was the Americano, and he asked him to add gin instead of soda. The resulting cocktail became known as the Negroni.

Now that we know the history, how do we make the Negroni?  The basic recipe to make a Negroni is to add one part gin, one part sweet vermouth, and one part Campari. With all the ingredients containing spirits, this can be one strong cocktail! But, with all the parts in balance, it can also be a delightful combination of sweet and bitter, with a crisp hint of botanicals from the gin and Campari.

The simple ratio also lends itself to being a great base to riff off of. Some of these riffs are classics like the Boulevardier or the Old Pal, or even one of our favorites, the Vampire Negroni!  Simple tweaks of the ingredients or the ratio can make all new drinks, all based off of this classic drink!

Strawberry Infused Campari

For our Negroni Week cocktail, we decided that we would embrace the sweetheart of spring, the strawberry. We wanted to keep the super clean look that using all spirits gives a negroni cocktail. So, rather than doing the typical adding fruit to the shaker and muddling, we decided to infuse some gin. We sliced some strawberries, put them in a jar, poured gin over and let it soak for a few days. Then, we did the same with the Campari.

What Ingredients are Needed for the Strawberry Negroni?

  • Strawberry Infused Gin
  • Strawberry Infused Campari
  • Sweet Vermouth

 

 

After a couple of days of soaking (hint, you will know its ready when the strawberries start to turn white as the gin leaches out all the color). So then we strained out the strawberries, leaving us with a beautiful red hued gin full of strawberry flavor.  When used, the strawberry infused gin adds a fruity edge to the Negroni, which is a nice addition to the standard!

 

 

The, we did the same with Campari, and we just let it infuse for the same amount of time as the gin.
