How to make a Blackberry Negroni

You can use a mixing glass for this or build direct in the glass. Whichever is easiest!

(Also, if you don’t have a cocktail mixing glass then a regular kitchen mixing jug works fine.)

Add all ingredients to your glass, then add cubed ice.

Stir for 15-20 seconds.

Peel an orange over the glass, then twist the peel and drop into the glass.

What is the Blackberry Negroni?

The classic Negroni is one of the most popular cocktails right now. Rumoured to have been created when an Italian count (called Negroni) asked for the soda in his Americano to be replaced with gin, it’s simplicity and elegant flavour profile has enchanted drinkers ever since.

Like all classics, it is constantly reworked by bartenders and home mixologists.

Take for example the Mezcal Negroni, which used the agave spirit similar to tequila instead of gin.

This recipe, which featured in our cocktail discovery box, takes the classic Negroni taste and adds Blackberry notes from the Slingsby Blackberry Gin.

The sweetness from the blackberry gin complements the vermouth rosso, with the Campari adding the required bitter element that characterises all Negronis.

For this recipe, you can use any blackberry infused gin – we opted for Slingsby.

Crafted using their award-winning London Dry Gin as a base, the spirit is infused with Yorkshire blackberries.

Spirit of Harrogate, who create Slingsby Gin, tested this new gin variation at their Harrogate store. After receiving amazing feedback for the mix, their decided to launch it around the UK.

Expert Tip

When peeling the orange, make sure to do this over your glass.

The bitter oils from the fruit are a key element of the Negroni, so don’t forget to twist the peel before adding it as a garnish.

Not only does it look prettier (always a consideration) but it will make the Blackberry Negroni taste better.
