Amaro Montenegro Monte Negroni

Traditionally used as an aperitif, we couldn’t resist this recipe from Amaro Montenegro for their ‘Monte Negroni’ cocktail this week. One of Italy’s finest liquers, Montenegro is one of the hottest drinks this Summer; with its hint of orange peel, coriander, tea, caramel and chestnut honey, it really is pure velvet! Perfect for welcome cocktails don’t you think?


30ml Amaro Montenegro
30ml sweet vermouth
30ml gin
Orange bitters

Orange peel to garnish


In a mixing glass, muddle all the ingredients over cold ice.  Strain into a glass (champagne saucers work well – and look great!) and garnish with orange peel.
