BORA Negroni

 A Mediterranean apertif

Named after Count Negroni who asked the bartender in his local Italian cafe for something stronger than the Campari, sweet vermouth and soda ‘Americano’ that he usually drank. Substituting gin for soda gave a perfectly balanced bitter sweet drink now known ubiquitously as a Negroni. Go one step further by substituting gin for BORA.

What You Need

  • 1 part  BORA Botanical Rum
  • 1 part Sweet Vermouth
  • 1 part Campari

25/25/25ml of each for one cocktail. Stir and pour over a glass full of ice or single large ice cube or ball. Savour immediately. 

Substituting gin with the delicate botanical notes of BORA, and adding the sweet bitterness of vermouth (our current favourite is fellow Cornish @Knightor_Vermouth) to the bright rich-red dryness of Campari makes an elegantly refreshing Negroni.
