The Negroni Family Tree
Nothing says summer quite like a crisp Negroni aperitif in the garden, the grass warmed by the late afternoon sun... While this may not be quite the garden paradise, we're getting in the 'spring' of things with these riffs on the classic Negroni by Campari and Bulldog Gin. Building up the "Negroni Family Tree" at this Manhattan Cocktail Classic Seminar was the responsibility of bar manager Masa Urushido and pastry chef Brian Yurko at New York City's Saxon + Parole restaurant. Together they created a "Deconstructed Negroni" dessert and ten Campari cocktails. Some of my favorite shots are below.
