The Australian Negroni
The Negroni traces back to Florence 1919. According to dependable folklore of the day the cocktail was born when an Italian bartender responded to a customer’s demand for a stiffer riff on an Americano cocktail (a less boozy mix of Campari, sweet vermouth, and soda). The patron, Count Camillo Negroni, had picked up a taste for strong liquor while working as a rodeo clown in the American Wild West, and gave his name to the resulting concoction.
One of the easiest cocktails to make - the key is quality ingredients
30 ml Poor Tom's Imbroglio - Sydney
30ml Applewood Gin - Adelaide Hills, SA
30 ml Adelaide Hills Rosso Vermouth - Adelaide Hills, SA
Layer ingredients over ice in a chilled mixing glass ( Boston Shaker)
Make sure ice is firm and not beginning to melt; this will dilute your Negroni and give it a water downed taste.
Gently Stir till ice is coated
Strain and pour into an old fashioned glass over one big ice cube or spherical ice cube - you can buy these moulds at most homeware stores.
Orange twist - with a knife or peeler slice a large section of the orange rind off. If there is white pith try to remove as much as possible.
Twist zest over Negroni to release oil and drop zest into glass.
