Birth of the Nigroni

The other night,  by chance, I created a new cocktail - at least, I think it's new, and I pass it on in the interests of good cheer and enlightenment. Here's the recipe:

A generous slug of Sloe Gin.
An equally generous slug of Campari.
A similar amount of Orange Juice.
A splash or more of Soda.
A little ice if you fancy it, and a good stir.
A slice of orange or (if you can be arsed) twist of peel to finish.

Because of its generic resemblance to the classic Negroni, I call this elixir the Nigroni. It looks good, tastes good, and by golly it does you good  - well, probably not the last, but it certainly makes you feel good. Cheers!


  1. The Nigroni? Sounds excellent.

    For a man of your sensibilities, Nige, might I also suggest another variant on the Negroni that might suit you? Merely substitute the Gin in a Negroni for Rye Whiskey (I'll allow you Bourbon at a pinch) and you have The Boulevardier.

  2. Magnificent - thanks Recusant!
