As Ollie is currently busy with various acting and singing ventures, I thought I should step in and do a much needed cocktail of the month. So what better for my first Cocktail of the Month than to make one with Amaro Nonino (my Spirit of the Month). I was playing around with the idea of a variant of a Negroni using Amaro. I made various permutations from the four ingredients: Amaro Nonino, Campari, Vermouth and Gin. My favourite option was actually leaving the Campari out, as the Amaro Nonino gave enough of the bitter edge that I was looking for.
As you can see I have kept the cocktail very simple: lots of ice, 3 ingredients and stir.
