I don’t know about you, but Gin makes me think of Summer. Long drinks, glistening in the sunbeams unfiltered by the clouds.
But when I think of a Negroni, I see leather upholstery, velvet, and twilight, speckled with sparks from a log fire. So that’s when I opt for a Boulevardier. All the joy of a Negroni, with the Winter Kiss of Bourbon.
Adding Cinnamon just seals the deal, winter in a glass. Add some drama by igniting it as it falls….
20ml Starlino Vermouth
Shake of Cinnamon and Orange Twist to finish
Ice, optional if you prefer the dilution as you drink
1. Layer all ingredients in a rocks glass and stir until well mixed. Either serve on ice or without.
2. Garnish with an orange twist, squeezing the oils first, shake with cinnamon from a height before serving. Shake over a naked flame for extra drama….
