And, we’re back.
After a short sabbatical doing nothing but drinking cocktails and mixing up cool shit as we always love to do, the team have been working behind the scenes to bring you the highest echelon education in drinking with style. With Fukuko Bar of Britomart spinning the juice, we’re stoked to present the debut of our collaboration: a refined take on mixology.
We decided to kick things off with a classic cocktail, the East India Negroni. A mix of Gin, Campari, and Vermouth, it’s often been touted as one of the best drinks of recent centuries. As an aside, the Negroni is also a personal favourite.
With ingredients best consumed nearest to the equator, the East India Negroni take a rum-based approach to a warmer, heartier tipple. Preferably served over a single cube of ice, this stirred concoction rubs the back of your throat, with a smooth touch on the tongue. It’s best pictured consumed by a hearth fire, spinning good yarns with the significant other; pouring this tipple over gently eases one through the colder winter months.
Inspired by East Indian spices and flavours, Jim Meehan of the PDT bar in New York City replaced the gin with rum, added more rum, and subbed the Vermouth for a nice, smooth Sherry. We take three parts Stolen White Rum, one part Campari, and one part Sherry, preferably East India (no shit).
Easy to learn but hard to master, this is sure fire classic is perfect for entertaining. It carries a bite that only true connoisseurs can hate to love. The East India Negroni, ladies and gentlemen.
