Recipe of the Week: How to Make a Winter Negroni

Ingredients
  • 70ml infused gin (recipe below)
  • 50ml bitter liqueur (eg. Campari)
  • 50ml sweet vermouth
  • 2 slices of orange
Infused gin (makes about 250ml)

  • 2 cloves
  • zest of 1 oranges
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 star anise
  • 250ml gin
Mixing instructions

For the infused gin:

Add all of the ingredients in a pot, except for the gin. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil then leave it on low heat for 8-10 minutes, until it gets syrupy. Leave to cool until cold before using it in the next stage.

Pour the syrup with all the spices into a glass bottle or jar, add the gin. Shake well to mix  – resist trying it – and store for at least a week to infuse, the longer the better! Strain before using.

For the cocktails:

Fill up two rocks glasses with ice cubes. Stir the infused gin, martini bitters, sweet vermouth in a cocktail shaker, divide the liquid between the glasses and add a slice of orange in each.
