Who said cocktails were only for summer? Certainly not me! This delicious Negroni is perfect for winter with it’s notes of blood orange and delicious sweetness. It’s super easy to make, comprising of just three ingredients. The Negroni originated in Florence in 1919, and is traditionally made up of 1 part Gin, 1 part Campari and 1 part Sweet Vermouth.
More recently, the Campari element is often substituted for Aperol, which I’ve used here. The twist in this recipe is that there is no gin. Instead, I’ve used Solerno – the world’s first blood orange liqueur. This is the perfect accompaniment to Aperol and Sweet Vermouth, giving the Negroni a sweeter edge.
Although I’m a big fan of gin, I have to say, I think this is a much more delicious Negroni!
