Globally renowned gin figures David T. Smith and Keli Rivers have collaborated on a new book exploring the versatility of the Negroni.
Smith, Gin Magazine’s contributing editor, and Sipsmith brand ambassador Rivers have co-authored Negroni, which contains more than 30 recipes from traditional serves to modern twists.
The book explores the great potential in this iconic Italian drink, stretching its basic formula to exciting new proportions. While covering classic serves such as straight-up over ice and a sparkling aperitivo spritz, Smith and Rivers also explore how the Negroni can be adapted for all seasons – from bright and citrusy summer versions, to spiced winter drinks and celebratory cocktails for special occasions.
Their exciting variations make use of both dry, sweet and aged vermouths, along with ports and sherries, and also cover experimental non-gin Negronis made using Bourbon, rum and even mezcal.
For any fan of the Negroni, this cocktail treasure trove is a must-read. It is being published by UK publishing house Ryland Peters & Small and is available in hardback from 9 March 2021, priced at RRP £7.99.
