- 30 ml of Red Vermouth
- 30 ml of Bitter
- 30 ml of espresso coffee
- Ice cubes
- Fill a medium glass with ice cubes. Make sure the glass is large enough to hold all the ingredients and leave room for mixing.
- Add the Red Vermouth to the glass. This sweet and aromatic liqueur is a fundamental component of Negroni and contributes to its complexity of taste.
- Pour the Bitter into the glass. Bitter is a bitter liqueur that gives the cocktail its distinctive character. Be sure to dose it precisely to obtain the right balance of flavours.
- As the last ingredient, pour the espresso preferably 100% Arabica into the glass. The espresso adds a touch of intensity and a note of coffee to the cocktail. Be sure to use a high quality espresso to obtain a full and rich flavour.
- Gently stir the ingredients in the glass to blend them. This will help distribute the flavors and aromas evenly.
- Garnish the cocktail with an orange peel to add a citrus note and a touch of freshness. Rub the orange zest on the surface of the cocktail to release the essential oils and give the drink an additional perfume.
- Serve the Coffee Negroni immediately, preferably in an old-fashioned glass or in a cocktail glass. Make sure that the glass is very cold to keep the cocktail at the right temperature.
Experiment with the proportions of the ingredients to adapt the Coffee Negroni to your personal tastes. You can vary the quantity of red vermouth, bitters and espresso coffee to obtain the perfect balance between sweetness, bitterness and intensity of the coffee. Remember that the secret of a good cocktail is experimentation and adaptation to your preferences.
