The Negroni is a tribute to the original definition of a cocktail: spirit, sweet and bitter, the ultimate balance of flavours to stimulate all senses and quench all thirsts.
“Back in 1919 Count Camillo Negroni gave his favourite cocktail, the Americano, an extra kick by substituting the soda water for gin (pretty obvious in hindsight, really).”
- 30mL Four Pillars Spiced Negroni Gin
- 30mL Campari
- 30mL sweet red vermouth

For a Contessa, swap out the Campari for Aperol to create a lighter, brighter version of this classic cocktail.
