Not a Negroni

While I could think of nothing better than seeing in the new year with a negroni or two, I do understand that for some, it is a little too strong. I've spent christmas experimenting and come up with a pretty good compromise - I've ditched the vermouth, increased the gin and added pomegranate juice.

It's easy to make in larger quantities and if you find this is still too strong for some, you can top it up individually with tonic, soda or even lemonade.

Not a Negroni

1 part campari
2 parts gin
4 parts pomegranate juice

Take a jug - pour in the campari and gin - give it a stir before adding ice and slices of orange. Pour in the pomegranate juice and give it another stir to combine.

Cheers and a Happy New Year!

  3. Sounds great. Can't wait to try it, especially as it's going to be a hot summer here in Sydney.
