General Manager: Alex Rosario
Cocktail: Basta Negroni
- One pineapple
- 1 L bottle Campari
- 1 L bottle of Carpano Antica Sweet Vermouth
- 1 L bottle of 1751 Gin Lane London Dry Gin
- 5 5-gram Sugar in the Raw packets (total 25g)
To serve: Add Negroni cocktail to ice in a shaker, stir don’t shake, then pour in a rocks or martini glass. Garnish with a touch of orange peel.
“Our barrel-aged Negroni is a perfect example of taking a classic Italian cocktail and adding a more approachable twist to it,” said General Manager Alex Rosario. “The oak of the aging process balances perfectly with the slight sweetness of the pineapple-infused Campari. This is a perfect cocktail to enjoy before having dinner.”
