How To Make A Negroni

The classic Negroni.

This one is #saproud with thanks to Imperial Measures Distilling Ruby Bitter, Ounce Signature Gin and a twist of fresh orange peel.

The aroma is intoxicating (maybe due to our generous pouringšŸ¤”)

We were introduced to Ounce Gin when we were having a few (ahem… *many) gins at @hainsco one Friday night a few years back.

As we were making our way through their wall of gin, we asked the bartender if our next one could feature orange and we’d leave it to him to decide.

He served us Ounce gin and we were hooked. It’s all we drank for the rest of the night.

Since then, this delicious drop has featured a lot in our glassware and we have spent a few occasions in the company of Chris and Dave’s Thebarton distillery.


Negroni Recipe



  1. 1 oz gin (any rail gin will work well)
  2. 1 oz sweet vermouth
  3. 1 oz Campari
  4. Orange peel, for garnish


  1. Fill a mixing glass with ice cubes.
  2. Add gin, sweet vermouth, and Campari to the mixing glass.
  3. Stir the ingredients with a bar spoon for about 20-30 seconds, until they are well-chilled and properly mixed.
  4. Strain the mixture into a rocks glass filled with ice.
  5. Garnish the drink with a thin strip of orange peel. You can express the oils from the orange peel over the drink by twisting it gently over the surface of the cocktail.
  6. Serve and enjoy your Negroni!

Note: If you prefer a stronger or weaker Negroni, you can adjust the ratio of gin, sweet vermouth, and Campari to your taste. Some people also like to add a splash of soda water to the drink, which will make it a bit lighter and fizzier.
