Negroni Week 2017 – Negroni Sour

6 Jun

It’s Negroni Week and I’m finally having my first of the week: a Negroni Sour.

-dry shake all the ingredients for a Negroni and an egg white with the whisk from a Hawthorne strainer

-add ice cubes and shake like mad

– if the egg white has taken away too much sour for your liking then add some in with lemon juice or some drops of these fab sour bitters from Bar 40 Bitters


– enjoy!

The drink is simply a Negroni with the added froth & silkiness that the egg white provides – delicious 

Deconstructed Negroni

9 Jun

Another drink for Negroni Week and this time it’s a Deconstructed Negroni from the Eric Felten book ‘How’s your drink’The recipe is:

  • 1 1/2 oz gin
  • 11/2 Lillet Blanc

Stirred over ice and then topped with a foam made of:

  • 1 egg white 
  • 2oz strained grapefruit juice
  • 1oz Aperol
  • 2 tsp orange bitters

I whisked the egg white until stiff then added the other ingredients and continued whisking. 


This makes a delicious drink with a lovely, tasty foam. After a few sips I poured the separated foam into the rest of the drink- delicious!

Negroni Popsicles

8 Jun

In celebration of Negroni Week and the heatwave London’s having at the moment I made some Negroni Popsicles.

I used white/ yellow grapefruits hence the colour difference but they gave them an added bitterness which is great to counteract the sugar in the recipe.

These are amazing and I’ll be sure to always have some on standby this summer.

 

Rhubarb Negroni

7 Jun

With my love of Negronis and rhubarb it’s a wonder it’s taken me this long to mix them.

I’ve written about Zucca Rabarbaro before and I still have a strong love for it and was delighted when I found this recipe:

  • 1 1/4 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 3/4 oz. Zucca Rabarbaro

All stiredover ice

The end result is lovely. The burnt sugar flavour of the Rabarbaro adds a depth and reveals a slight bitterness which will leave you wanting more.
