Savour These 6 Superior Variations On A Classic Negroni

Negroni Sbagliato

Welcome to the adult version of being a kid in the candy store, where we’re sampling Negronis. But not just any Negronis—we're talking about spins on the classic that'll make your taste buds do a double take. Now, everyone knows the standard Negroni—that perfect blend of gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. But what happens when you throw in some unexpected twists? That's when things get really interesting.
 
Cold Brew Negroni: Wake Up and Smell the Coffee
 
First off, for all the coffee aficionados out there who crave a brew at odd hours, meet the Cold Brew Negroni. Just imagine your favourite cold brew dancing with the classic Negroni ingredients. It’s a wake-up call in a glass. Seriously, it's like your regular Negroni pulled an all-nighter at a hip coffee joint. You get this rich, velvety texture that makes things more delicious.

Pandan Negroni: Tropical Vibes
 
For a fragrant tropical spin, infuse your Campari with pandan leaves. This Pandan Negroni brings in sweet, grassy notes, making it feel like you’re having a fresh local dessert on a far-off island somewhere in Southeast Asia. It's the Negroni taking a vacation and sending you a drinkable postcard from paradise.
 
Negroni Sbagliato: Bring On the Bubbles
 
Now for something a bit fizzy, let’s talk about the popular favourite, the Negroni Sbagliato. This is where you swap the gin for some bubbly Prosecco. It’s lighter, fun, and perfect for those days when you feel a bit fancy but not too over the top.

Old Pal: Whisky Makes It Bold
 
For the whisky lovers, let's bring in some fine amber-hued blends. Swap the gin in your Negroni for Johnnie Walker Black Label. This Old Pal version is like a hearty handshake—warm, familiar, yet bold. The whisky's smokiness mingles beautifully with the bitterness of Campari and the dry vermouth. It’s classic, yet daring.
 
White Negroni: A Suze Surprise
 
Now, let’s lighten things up with the White Negroni. Swap out Campari for Suze, and replace sweet vermouth with Lillet Blanc. This one’s a game changer; it’s lighter, a bit floral, and has a certain 'je ne sais quoi' or something appealing but it’s hard to put your finger on it’, about it.
 
Mezcal Negroni: Smokey and Mysterious
 
Fancy something with a bit of mystery? Replace the gin with mezcal for a smoky twist. This Mezcal Negroni is like a night in the desert—dark, a bit mysterious, with whispers of smoke around a flickering fire. Add a twist of charred orange peel on top, and you've got yourself a cocktail that's as dramatic in flavour as it is in looks.
 
So, there you have it. Whether it’s a morning kick with cold brew, a festive bubble with Sbagliato, a bold twist with whisky, a light touch with Suze, a smoky note with mezcal, or a tropical getaway with pandan, these Negroni variations are here to shake up your cocktail routine.
