Not Quite Negroni Week: King’s Summer Cup Cocktail Recipe

Not Quite Negroni Week: King’s Summer Cup Cocktail Recipe

Not Quite Negroni Week: King’s Summer Cup Cocktail Recipe It seems we’re destined to be a little behind. The first week of June, 6000 bars and restaurants were mixing up one of our favorite cocktails for Negroni Week. We were oblivious until, midweek, we started to see some of our favorite bartenders posting their Negroni Week photos on twitter. Well, better late than never, right? Two weeks after Negroni Week proper, we’re holding our own Not Quite Negroni Week, featuring 5 not quite Negronis. All of them follow the wonderfully balanced classic Negroni pattern, and many of them contain at least one of the original Negroni ingredients (gin, sweet vermouth, Campari); but they also stretch the bounds of what it means to be a Negroni in one way or another. We end with the biggest stretch yet. As we promised, it’s still equal parts spirit, fortified wine, and liqueur, as a Negroni is; but the similarity to a Negroni ends there. With this drink, we went for maximum richness...

Two weeks after Negroni Week proper, we’re holding our own Not Quite Negroni Week, featuring 5 not quite Negronis. All of them follow the wonderfully balanced classic Negroni pattern (1 part spirit: 1 part fortified wine: 1 part liqueur), and many of them contain at least one of the original Negroni ingredients (gin, sweet vermouth, Campari); but they also stretch the bounds of what it means to be a Negroni in one way or another. One of the defining characteristics of a Negroni is bitterness. But what if you’re feeling more genial? We wanted something with a Negroni’s proportions and balance, but with a flavor...

Not Quite Negroni Week: The Half Measure Cocktail Recipe It seems we’re destined to be a little behind. The first week of June, 6000 bars and restaurants were mixing up one of our favorite cocktails for Negroni Week. We didn’t even know it was happening until, midweek, we started to see some of our favorite bartenders posting their Negroni Week photos on twitter. Well, better late than never, right?

Today we take on the very reason for the Negroni existing at all. According to legend, Count Camillo Negroni’s favorite drink was the Americano, which...

With today’s recipe we wander pretty far from the path, with all three ingredients being swapped for something else that, while staying in the proper category, has quite a different...

Not Quite Negroni Week: The Old Pal Cocktail Recipe

Not Quite Negroni Week ‘Was that today?’ is a question we find ourselves asking all the time. It feels like we’re always finding out about something midstream. This happens all the time living in DC, where our main way of figuring out that some special event is happening is getting to Pennsylvania Avenue and finding it closed or to the National Mall and finding it overrun by marching bands. There’s just so much to keep track of, and our main mechanism of alerting us to events in the world–Facebook–has a habit of telling us just a little late, when something is already in progress; it was Wednesday of Teacher Appreciation week by the time it made it to my feed–that’s probably something I should have picked up on earlier, seeing as my day job is in education policy. The same thing happened to us with Negroni Week. For the past several years, imbibe magazine and Campari co-sponsor one week a year of celebrating one of the world’s great cocktails.
