Brit Award Party Tonight

The Brit Awards is a music industry award show which is shown on UK TV. My kids love it, so on their request we ordered a pizza delivery, and I made a Negroni.

I’ve been to award shows like this in the past, and I know it’s difficult to get served a Negroni while you’re there, so that is probably why I elected to stay at home this time.

I’m open to any award invitations where Negronis are served, by the way.

How To Make: Negroni Straight Up

Negroni: Gin, Campari & vermouth.

  • A dash of Angostura
  • 35ml of Gin
  • 35ml of Campari
  • 35ml of Martini Rosso
  • Preferred glass would be a Cocktail glass
  • Garnish with a rind of grapefruit peel

The Negroni is the champion of all cocktails.

Stir everything together with ice in a glass mixing jug. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Use a citrus stripper to peel a rind of grapefruit, but do this over the glass so that the oils from the skin coat the surface of the drink.

Usually if you order this drink in London, it's usually served built over ice, but I'm not a big fan of it this way. I might have it over ice when it's really hot out, or if I want to sip a cool longer drink.

Avoid any further bullshit.
