On a recent pre-COVID visit to Italy, we stumbled across the perfect Negroni in the northern Italian city of Turin. Expertly balanced with just the right mix of sweet, sour and bitter the Negroni will renew your love of all things Italian. There is something so stylish about this drink, and when it is enjoyed on a balcony overlooking a historic city served by knowledgeable waiters clad in sharp suits, it really cannot be bad. However, if you are recreating this drink at home the trick is to make sure that you don’t forget the orange, the hint of citrus adds that something extra. Happy Friday!
What to Drink – A Classic Negroni
30ml Sweet Vermouth
Fill a short tumbler glass with ice. Add the Campari, Vermouth and Gin. Stir through and serve garnished with an orange slice or peel.
We are taking our inspiration from classic Sophia Loren, 1950’s style. Fitted, sexy and oh so Italian.
What to Wear
Get Sophia’s style by pairing a classic corset or silk cami with a fitted pencil skirt and fishnet tights. Add a little interest with sequins or sparkles – perfect for this time of the year.
What To Listen To
Italian and classic, Federico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita soundtrack is perfect to accompany a classic Negroni. Click here to listen.
