An Archie Rose Smoked Gin Negroni is a thing of beauty. It always amazes me how much variation you get from a Negroni depending on the gin you use. If you think about the other players on the stage - Campari and sweet vermouth, they’re hardly bit parts. There is so much going on, so much sugar to dampen the bitter, so much bark to match the bite. Yet the high notes of good gins will always manage to sing through.
- 30ml Smoked Gin
- 30ml Campari
- 30ml Sweet Vermouth
- orange twist to garnish
Stir all ingredients together for 20-30 seconds, strain over fresh ice (the larger the better).
Using a vegetable peeler, peel a strip of peel from an orange. If you are feeling refined trim the edges using a paring knife into a rhombus.
Now face the strip at the surface of the drink and squeeze the zest between your thumb and fingers, expressing the oils over the surface of the drink.
Relax and drink.
