Happy #ThirstyThursday guys, instead of a Throwback I’m looking forward to #NegroniWeek starting next Monday. This year there’s extra special significance as it’s the 100th anniversary of the iconic Negroni!
To celebrate Campari are launching “N100: Cheers to the Count” a series of #N100 parties that kick off around the UK today. Yesterday I managed to get a sneak peek to find there’s 100 different riffs of the classic Negroni under one roof!
Yes 100, you know I like to do a lot of research but that’s not a target! I did try some interesting ones, built a few and enjoyed some recommendations from the 6 various bars they set up
I started at ”The Classics Bar” made complexly of Campari bottles serving the classic Negroni with various choices of gin & vermouth. Next was a cool looking Ice Bar with bottles encased in Ice!
Another bar invited you to create a #Negroni based on a many flavour options, I chose “spiced chocolate” & “elegant nutty” which turned out to be @anticaformula_official and yummy Barrel Aged @eastlondonliquorcompany gin
3 other bars all offering other twists & riffs with Mezcal, Appleton Rum, Whisky, Wild Turkey & more, something for everyone!
Here’s my favourite the recipe was kindly provided by Aneesa. Strangely enough it had flavours of Antica & Nuttiness based on the one I built earlier!
MUNICH WESTERN NEGRONI
25ml #WildTurkey 81 #Bourbon
10ml Frangelico Hazelnut Liqueur
10ml Antica Formula
2 drops Aztec Chocolate Bitters + served with a chocolate garnish
Build all in a tumbler over big ice, stir lots!
We’ll see many excellent Negroni riffs next week, but we have Count Camilo Negroni to thank for the original. He asked for his usual Americano (Campari, Vermouth, Lemon peel invented in 1915) to have the soda replaced with something a bit stronger. So bartender Fosco Scarselli reached for gin + replaced lemon with a slice of orange, the rest was history!
Enjoy your Negroni’s this week, don’t have 100 or you’ll be out for the Count!
It's a hard life but we had to torture ourselves with a local beer tasting for a beer flight at work. @lostandgroundedbrewers@wiperandtrue@drinkmoorbeer@goodchembrew@lhgbrewpub
Bristol.. you do beer well.
1. The age of a quick fix (Lost and grounded) apart from the awesome psychedelic packaging this is a hoppy sour beer which tasted almost like fresh lemon juice. Solid 10/10 defo my favourite .. fuck loads of flavour and super refreshing.
2. Alphonso the passionate man-goose (collab by LHG, wiper and true, bristol brewery and good chemistry brewing) this fruity assault on the senses was a badass local collab for the bristol beer festival and is another sexy sour beer packed with mango, passionfruit and gooseberries. It is almost not even a beer more, this tart little number is in a league of it's own. Super different I'd give it a 8/10. But 10/10 for name and packaging.
3. No rest for dancers ( Lost and grounded) a amber ale with a deep colour and a beautiful bitter finish I feel this bad boy would actually go with creamy dishes really well to break up the beige moorishness. Super drinkable and tasty for those who like a darker beer. 7/10
4. Do it together (Moor beer company)
We actually tried a few from this range but this was by far my favourite. To quote Ed 'a light refreshing beer to have down the pub whilst having a plough mans' ... thanks grandad. But also very true a super light pale ale mixed with a mango tea by the @cantontea company just exactly what it says on the tin.. or can. Very drinkable summer beverage. Now can we just have the summer.. thanks. 7/10
