The Negroni, so bitter, so sweet, much like life itself. Often caught in a love-hate debate between those cringing at its bitterness and intensity and those drawn by its robust flavors that go against the grain of mainstream cocktail culture.
On paper, the Negroni appears quite simple to make: equal parts gin, Campari and sweet vermouth, traditionally served on the rocks, or served up, with a twist of orange. Is there more to it than that? Why does my Negroni taste better when my local bartender makes it than when I mix one up at home?
Join the Museum of the American Cocktail as Dave Lord, Matt Keller and Luke Johnson deconstruct and demystify this classic cocktail. Tracing the history of this polarizing cocktail from its precursors in early 20th Century Italy (the Milano Torino and Americano cocktails), though its inspired creation at the behest of Count Camillo Negroni a few years later, all the way to its current resurgence in popularity in the early 21st century. You'll be sure to leave this evening with a new appreciation for this most bitterly delicious of cocktails. And who knows? - maybe you'll even learn the secret to making a great Negroni yourself...
You'll receive 6 sample-size cocktails, delicious appetizers, and learn how to make these great drinks at home, plus the stories behind them. Salute!
