Winter Orangey Negroni Recipe from the English Drinks Company:
You may remember me raving about a new Orangery Gin that I was sent to sample a couple of months ago. I made my own cocktail with the bottle I was sent and thoroughly enjoyed experimenting with what, so far as I was concerned, was a nice enough gin to just drink neat.
Now that winter is closing in, I’m looking around for cocktails which are warming and comforting and I just love the sound of this Orangey Negroni which is made with Campari and Vermouth together with my favourite Orangery Gin. It’s a wonderful bitter citrussy drink, just perfect as a Christmas aperitif.
- 25 ml Orangery Gin
- 25 ml Rosso Vermouth
- 25 ml Campari
- An orange to garnish
Shake well with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass,
Carefully make an orange peel twist to garnish by cutting a fine slice of peel from the whole orange and putting to one side
Top the drink with a little zest of orange and the orange peel twist
