Hello Everyone and Happy Wednesday. We hope that you are keeping well and safe and staying at home during this month of April, that will probably extend into the next few months. At least now, we can get out for unlimited exercise as we are starting to come out of our 3rd “lock down” which is great news, with meeting up up with family and friends outside, with the “rule of six”. But we have a way out with the vaccine.

We thought we would show you how to make another cocktail, called the Negroni-Cocktail. The origin or history of how this cocktail started is it was by a rich Florence Count Camillo Negroni who in 1919 is said to have asked his bartender Forsco Scarelli, to add Gin to his favourite Americano cocktail. Scarelli was working at a café Casino, now Cavalli Café in Florence, Italy. Following success of this, the Negroni family founded the Negroni Distilleries Intreviso, making a ready made drink.

How to make the above cocktail, you will need the following ingredients/equipment.

25ml Campari

25ml Sweet Vermouth

25ml Gin

Orange Twist (for the garnish)

Whisky/Tumbler Glass (or something similar from your cupboard)

Bar or Tea Spoon

Ice Scoop

Cocktail Pourers

Chopping Board/Knife

This is a fairly straight forward cocktail to make but also very easy to drink too.

To make this cocktail, you will need to follow these simple steps:

Place a couple of ice cubes into the bottom of the glass. Then pour the 25ml Gin, 25ml Sweet Vermouth and the 25ml Campari straight into the whisky glass. Using a bar spoon, give the drink a stir until mixed properly. Finally, place a piece of orange peel onto the top of the drink.

Kick yourself back, relax and enjoy!
