London Dry Negroni

Celebrating Negroni week at Penrhos

The Negroni is said to have been created in Italy around 100 years ago and has become a staple on the menu in many bars around the world.

The classic and simple cocktail is typically made with Campari (an alcoholic spirit infused with bitter herbs, aromatic plants, and fruit), sweet vermouth (a flavored white wine), and gin. Most typically garnished with a twist of orange peel. However, over the years people have created their own versions… But, Campair is key and one-third of a Negroni, it’s (arguably) the only ingredient you can’t change.

In Italy a Negroni should be enjoyed during aperitivo hour. During this hour, light, slightly bitter drinks and small servings of food are served and are said to ‘open your pallet’ for an upcoming meal but not fill you up. A classic, bitter Italian cocktail, the Negroni is popularly served during this time.
