Bitter yet sweet, like the perfect love story, dry yet refreshing, like the mean joke you shouldn’t laugh at but do anyway, the Negroni is a beautiful mystery, a powerful fusion of opposites, an intricate slow dance between an angel and a devil.
When Campari asks Martini Rosso to dance and then Bombay Sapphire cuts in, you know eyebrows will be raised. This is a night for strange bedfellows, star-crossed flavours that, by some magic stroke, come together perfectly.
And as you take your first sweet sip of Negroni, you realise; somehow, inexplicably, you just know. What “it” is all about. It’s speaking without words. The playful smile you swap with a perfect stranger. You`re heart beating that little bit faster. Nervous yet brave, hunter and hunted – that electric feeling. The Negroni is a clandestine kiss. A hand extended for a forbidden dance in the last light of a cool summer’s eve. . .
