When I started documenting my cocktails, it wasn’t my intention to make my cat the star of the show. The support you have all given me over the past few days shows how much you enjoy photos with Ferris, and as I continue documenting my cocktails, this presents me with a dilemma. It occurs to me that some of you might want to continue to see the odd photo of Barfly Cat now and again, and I’ve still got loads of photos that I never used. Ferris also has a sister who also likes to sit at the bar, and quite possibly could continue the Barfly Cat tradition. And then there are the cocktails themselves, the main subject of my blog. I’m interested in hearing your thoughts on what you’d enjoy from my photos, and would welcome your suggestions. Thank you all… #itsdrinkoclock #barflycat #cocktails #cocktail
How To Make: Negroni Straight Up
- 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.
