Blood Orange Negroni

15 Mar

Another day, another Negroni variation.

This time the spotting of some blood orange juice when buying food led me to get to try a new recipe. With less Campari and Vermouth but 1oz of blood orange juice to make up the shortfall: this is a Blood Orange Negroni

The recipe is:
– 1oz gin
– 1/2 oz Campari
– 1/2 oz Vermouth
-1oz blood orange juice

The result is obviously very similar to a Negroni but a fresher, lighter version.

The Campari still has a kick- in fact maybe more so. I’ve come to find in these Negroni versions that use less of it the Campari stands out more rather than just being a sweet and bitter overwhelming component. The use of less of it helps it make more of an impact as a flavour component.

The juice allows the drink to be the same length but with alcohol both in its potency and taste.

Perfect as a summer version of a Negroni or want one to sip for longer without it feeling or tasting so much of an aperitif.
