June's #NegroniWeek meant only one thing: plenty of amber-hued cocktails were being chinked together to say cheers for a fantastic week! Equal parts vermouth, gin and bitters, the Negroni cocktail has never been more popular and couldn't be simpler to make.
The Negroni cocktail takes its name from Count Camillo Negroni, a bon vivant and charasmatic gentleman.
When ordering his usual drink, the Americano, at the Caffe Casoni bar in Florence, the Count asked the bartender to strengthen it by adding gin instead of the usual soda water. The bartender also used an orange zest garnish instead of the normal lemon zest one to differentiate the two drinks.
Fantastically easy to make at home, add plenty of ice cubes to a rocks glass and pour equal measures into the glass, stir, and garnish with an orange zest twist.
