THE BOXER NEGRONI
The Negroni is a gin-based aperitif first mixed in Florence, Italy in 1919. The classic equal parts recipe calls for dry gin, sweet red vermouth and bitter amaro. This strongly flavoured drink requires a powerful, juniper-forward gin. Boxer Gin, with its full spectrum array of Himalayan juniper is the perfect choice.
To create the Boxer Negroni we have collaborated with the Negroni Antica distillery in Treviso, which has been creating aperitifs for over 100 years. Export strength Boxer Gin is balanced by the sweetness of the red Torino vermouth, given bitter notes by the quinine and gentian in our amaro and finished with a dash of mandarin bitters.
To serve: pour two 50ml shots into a tumbler full of ice cubes and garnish with a slice of orange. Add Prosecco for a lighter Spritz.
