Readers!….one has News! The gates to heaven have opened ravaged your Doctor’s tastebuds. Your dear doctor’s favourite cocktail, the rarely seen Negroni is now transformed into a thing of great beauty. Now, this is not the Doctor’s idea, nor is it the conception of the barman at Plateau restaurant where it was stored in the miniature barrels pictured. “What is it?” I hear you cry and one would retort, by Jove it is naturally the BARREL AGED NEGRONI cocktail. Now rather than claim the credit for being knowledgeable about this delightful concoction one will refer you to a man that knows best. Although there seems to be some debate about his ratios of gin and Vermouth so your Doctor’s classic choice is below.
- 1 part Gin
- 1 part Campari
- 1 part Sweet Vermouth.
Now, the secret is in the ageing of your cocktail and one will now hand you over to Josh Sullivan of “Post Prohibition” and the cocktail movement based in the colonial town of Baltimore. Just follow this link. Full instructions will be revealed.
