5 Ways To Twist A Negroni

By Chloe Sputore - 07 Mar 2017

Negronis are having a moment right now and it’s no wonder why—they’re freakin’ delicious. Aromatic, sweet and bitter, negronis are made with the perfect blend of gin, vermouth rosso and bitter aperitif.

Originating in Florence, Italy, the negroni is named after Italian Count Camillo Negroni (sounds like a cool dude) who added gin to his Americano instead of soda water, and in recent times they’ve become the bartenders’ (and our) cocktail of choice.

Bartender extraordinaire, Clement Martin, from the cool new NOLA Sydney in Barangaroo thinks that cocktails should constantly evolve to suit our changing tastes. Using different aromatic ingredients in place of Campari, Clement makes a mean negroni that’s a lot drier than your usual, and with more gin. We certainly won’t say no to that!

We’ve teamed up with the legends behind Bombay Sapphire and NOLA Sydney to bring you five easy-to-make twists on a negroni that will knock your socks off. Glasses at the ready!
