A Frozen Negroni is the perfect way to turn this sipping cocktail into a fabulous summer treat!
Do you know what this week is? It’s #NegroniWeek – Negroni Week is an event sponsored by Campari and Imbibe Magazine. It takes place the first week of June. Bars sign up to participate and for every Negroni they sell, they will donate $1 or more to a specific charity. You can go to that website and see what bars, hotels, and restaurants in your area are participating. It’s a worthy cause and the perfect excuse to have a Negroni or two!
I love Negronis. Three ingredients: Camapri, Gin and Vermouth combine to make the most delicious tart cocktail. You can play with different types of gin and vermouth to vary the nuances. Here is a good article from Chow – 8 Must-Try Cocktails for Negroni Week, that gives you even more variations – I plan on trying them all! I had already decided to make a frozen Negroni (still loving my new Vitamix!) – so I was happy to see their version. My version is similar, but I didn’t include the simple syrup.
This was so good!! It was tart, frosty and refreshing. If you love frozen cocktails, try serving these instead of the usual frozen margaritas, daiquiris, or pina coladas. After I made mine, I saw at Serious Eats that they recommend placing the alcohol in the freezer first for several hours – what a great idea!
