Transport yourself to Italy, as you drink your way through Negroni Week in the capital. Made with one-part gin, one-part vermouth and one-part Campari the intense drink is served on the rocks and has made quite a name for itself around the world. Happening from 14-20 September we have the list of restaurants who are celebrating the red cocktail in all its glory or with their own special twist.
Monster Kitchen and Bar
It’s no secret Monster knows good cocktails, so of course they had no option but to celebrate Negroni Week. Serving up six speciality smoked Negronis for $18, the Nishi Ovolo Hotel has gone ‘up in smoke.’ Some to look forward to include, ‘Umeshu Negroni’: mesquite smoked blend of yuzu infused gin, Campari, Choya Kokuto umeshu and candied yuzu. And ‘Citron Negroni’: applewood smoked blend of citrus trio infused gin, Campari, Cinzano 1757 Rosso, orange bitters and dehydrated lemon. There is even the option to get yours takeaway if you feel like celebrating at home. The Ovolo Hotels have also announced that $1 from every Negroni purchased will be donated to the Help Out Hospo charity, for the Australian hospitality industry and workers in need.
