Making the Perfect Australian Negroni...

It all started with the Americano and an Italian Count who liked it boozy. Created by Gaspare Campari around 1860, the Americano is 1 part Vermouth and 1 part Campari topped with soda. It was originally named the "Milano-Torino" - the Campari from Milan and the vermouth from Turin (an important footnote when considering the “classic” Negroni). Legend has it that around 1920 Count Camillo Negroni, wanting a bigger buzz from his spritz, asked a bartender to replace the soda in his Americano with gin. So the Negroni was born - bitter, sweet and so deliciously complex. For some devotees, the greatest drink in the history of drinks.

Many adaptations now exist on the classic combination of equal parts gin, Vermouth and Amaro. Bartender, Luigi Bosco reflects, “Theoretically, the Negroni is the easiest drink to make. In reality though, because of the huge range of products consumers have at their disposal nowadays, it's a bit more complicated. I found myself tweaking the ratios multiple times to find the right balance, mostly because some vermouths aren't rich enough to get along with an equal amount of Amaro. Also, the lower alcohol contents in many modern Gins meant I often had to increase the amount of Gin.”

With this search for balance in mind and a range of superb Australian products at our disposal, this is where the fun starts! For a more strident and bitter, boozy aperitif try 20ml Maidenii, 30ml Applewood and 40ml Patient Wolf Gin with two hard dashes of Negroni bitters for that classic orange edge.

  • 40ml Patient Wolf Premium Dry Gin
  • 30ml Applewood Okar Amaro
  • 20ml Maidenii Sweet Red Vermouth
  • Two hard dashes of Mister Bitters Negroni bitters for that classic orange edge.
  • Garnish: Orange slice.

Method: Stir briefly in a mixing glass filled with ice then strain into an ice-filled rocks glass or tumbler. Twist an orange zest over the surface of the drink to release fresh aromatic oils. Garnish with the orange wedge if desired. A classic 1:1:1 ratio results in a soft, cinnamon scented entry into the Negroni (almost a cinnamon “Negronut”).
