What better way to ring in the New Year than with Negroni? Negroni is an Italian cocktail made from gin, Campari (a bittersweet liquor), and red vermouth. It is a classic cocktail that is usually served with ice in a low-ball glass (small glass) or without ice in a Champaign glass that is also known as Champaign flutes.
The Negroni cocktail was invented in Florence, Italy thanks to Count Camillo Negroni who asked his bartender to add a bigger punch to his favorite cocktail, the Americano. The Count asked that he add gin rather than the usual soda water. On top of that, the bartender added an orange garnish rather than just the typical lemon garnish of the Americano. And just like that, the Bungled Negroni was born.
This year, I decided to use different glasses to serve the drinks in rather than the traditional Champaign flute that it’s typically served in. I believe that since the drink is already bungled, it can therefore be served in these super cute dot dot glasses of ZAK Design Europe. Originally, the glasses are intended for coffee, but the festivity of New Year's had me pulling out all the stops!
I hope that you will enjoy the drink and you can even serve some finger food, like canapés, with it. From my family to yours, Happy New Year!
