1x Noilly Prat Rouge Vermouth (375ml)
Introduced in 1955, Noilly Prat Rouge is made with 29 different herbs and spices sourced from around the world. Among them sweet orange from Spain, cinnamon from Sri Lanka, cinchona bark from Ecuador, cloves from Madagascar, and cocoa beans from Venezuela. Caramel is added to bring the sugar up to 150g/L, still on the drier side of most sweet vermouth.
1 x Poor Tom's Distillery: Imbroglio Bitter (500ml)
Australia's answer to Campari (without the additives), Poor Toms' brand new aperitivo amaro has just landed. This bittersweet Amaro Australiano is right at home in a Negroni, a spritz, or straight over ice. A natural leap for the Poor Toms team, Imbroglio shares much in common with gin—in technique and intent. They individually distill Seville oranges and mandarins plus ten more familiar gin ingredients—juniper, et al. Add to the mix 13 steeped herbs, fruits, and vegetables (including gentian, wormwood, strawberry gum, and beetroot), and the ensuing calamity is a fresh, herbaceous frenzy that will make you forget whether you're coming or going.
THE NEGRONI COCKTAIL'S HISTORY
A popular drink around the 1860s/1870s was the Milano-Torino, a mix of bitter, barky Campari and sweet vermouth. It is said that around 1920, the Italian Count Camillo Negroni went to his favorite Florentine bar, and asked for something stronger, so the soda water was replaced with gin. The Negoni is born.
