We thought we'd kick off 2018 with a classic cocktail, the Negroni, but with our shiso twist.
The Negroni dates back to the turn-of-the-century and is said to have been invented in Florence, Italy. Traditionally, the cocktail is made by mixing gin, vermouth rosso, and Campari to produce a beautiful deep ruby red cocktail. We replace the vermouth with red shiso syrup to enhance the red color of the drink, whilst also giving the cocktail a citrusy kick. Delicious AND Beautiful!
- equal parts: Gin, Campari, and Red HVSF Shiso Syrup
Mix all three ingredients in a cocktail mixer with ice. Strain drink and either serve on the rocks or chilled & strained. Also serve with a nice citrus wedge for garnish. Enjoy!
