As Italy's most famous cocktail, the refreshing and bitter Negroni is formed by a simple recipe.Today we've headed over to the bar to learn how to perfect this longstanding classic with Bar Manager Diego Lenzoni.
The Negroni is made of Equal parts of gin, campari and red vermouth- at Arcade we use Cocchi. Stirred in a mixing glass with ice, it is served classically, poured over fresh ice and garnished with a slice of fresh orange and an olive. For a softer version, try our Sbagliato Negroni. Translating to 'mistaken' in Italian, the Sbagliato was the accidental creation of a bartender who mistakingly swapped gin for prosecco when making a Negroni. The Sbagliato is a sparkling and fruiter rendition of the classic Negroni. As the ultimate apéritif, the Negroni is perfect alongside a small bite or two. Diego's choice is a plate of iberico Jamón sliced up at Provisions late, followed by Sushi Kamon's Maki Rolls.
In celebration of Negroni week, all our Negronis will be available for £7.50 until 18 September; grab a seat at the Provisions Late counter and discover your new favourite.
