How to make ...

Strawberry Negroni

The original Negroni of Gin, Sweet Vermouth, and Campari was invented in Florence in 1919 at Cafe’Casoni when Count Camillo Negroni asked the bartender for a stronger version of his favourite drink, The Americano (SweetVermouth, Campari, Soda.) The bartender swapped out the Soda water for Gin, and garnished the drink with orange rather than lemon to signify it was a different drink.

The Negroni has grown in popularity over the last few years to become a favourite among casual drinkers and cocktail enthusiasts alike.

While this cocktail has a very simple structure – made of only 3 ingredients, stirred with a little ice – the myriad of flavours contained in those ingredients means the Negroni is a rich and balanced cocktail, and by trying a range of different gins and vermouths you will find a unique drinking experience with each new combination.

The Negroni is a gin classic, although, whilst its a much loved cocktail, not everyone enjoys the strong bitter flavour profile of this Italian staple. For a similarly complex drink with a much sweeter flavour profile you could try the Boulevardier. This cousin of the Negroni switches the usual gin for bourbon, lending a woody, caramel-y tone to the herbal base of vermouth and Campari.

If you’re hoping to serve something longer and lower in alcohol alongside a Negroni you may want to think about its predecessor, the Americano. This drink predates the Negroni, and is traditionally served as a light aperitif. It combines the sweet vermouth and Campari with soda water instead of gin for a long, pre-dinner drink.

For a slightly more luxurious take on this classic you could try the Spagliato. This version replaces the gin with prosecco to make a tall, elegant cocktail packed with subtle dryness and floral fizz.

If gin’s your thing and you want to serve a range of classics including this celebrated spirit there are plenty of gin cocktails to suit all sorts of tastes.

One of our favourite gin classics is the Corpse Reviver No.2; this classic 30’s sour-style gin drink combines the eponymous spirit in equal measure with floral dry vermouth, orange liqueur and lemon juice, making for a balanced and tasty drink that packs a bit of a punch.

If you’re planning on featuring a Negroni on your menu and want to know more about what cocktails could accompany it, be sure to speak to your event organiser about your options, or check out some other gin-based, classic, and Italian-style cocktails from our list.
