    5 Variations of the Classic Negroni:


    1. Hot Negroni:

    Embrace the cold season with a heartwarming twist on the classic Negroni. The 'Hot Negroni' transforms the traditional recipe with a comforting modification—replacing soda water with steaming hot water for a drink that wraps you in warmth.

    Made with 100ml of gin, 60ml of Campari, 60ml of sweet vermouth, and a splash of hot water, this concoction is stirred in a heatproof glass and optionally garnished with an orange peel for a citrusy touch. Perfect for sipping beside a crackling fire or during a frosty night in, the Hot Negroni proves that some classics can be enjoyed in cozy, new ways.
