Image Credit: Celebrate Negroni Week with these wonderful cocktails

One cocktail that has breached the boundaries of where it originated from and reached a point where it is one of the most loved drinks across countries is negroni. Having originated in Italy, this contemporary classic drink has now become so popular that we have an entire week to celebrate the cocktail in its original form and all its equally wonderful variants. The proportions of a classic negroni is very interesting – one-part gin, one-part sweet vermouth and one-part Campari. This drink is served before the meal and it is an aperitif, which basically means that it aids in building appetite.

The classic negroni is not shaken, it is stirred. It is built over ice in rocks or classic glass and is either garnished with an orange slice, like in the original version or with orange peel. It has truly transcended generations and continues to remain popular with both the traditionalists and with modernists who like their drinks with a twist. It is a slightly bitter drink but lovers of negroni call that very taste the true indicator of a good drink.

With Negroni week on the horizon, Bombay Sapphire and Martini bring you the perfect opportunity to be homebound slightly earlier than usual. Picture being perched amongst your favorite nook, unwinding with a glass that boasts of the bittersweet characteristics of Bombay Sapphire Gin and Martini Vermouth.
