Is there a more famous gin aperitivo than the Negroni? Reputed to originate in 1919 in Florence and named after the Count Camillo Negroni this simple drink creates a powerfully bitter, richly flavoured and ultimately delicious combination. Garden Swift sings amongst sweet vermouth and Campari, adding huge layers of floral complexity.
Cocktails don't come simpler to make than this:
25ml Garden Swift dry gin (or try one of our barrel aged versions)
25ml rosso Vermouth (sweet Italian)
A strip of orange zest
Pour all three ingredients into an ice filled tumbler. Stir and enjoy this powerfully flavoured marvel. Garnish with a twist of orange zest.
