The White Negroni is a clear twist on the classic Negroni that’s a little lighter and a touch drier than the classic. This is due to the replacement of sweet vermouth with Lillet Blanc, an off-dry, aperitif wine that is less sweet than its red counterparts.
Although Lillet Blanc is the original choice here, there are a number of good off-dry aperitif wines to choose from these days. Just remember that you’re looking for a Blanc or Bianco style, not Dry or Extra Dry. Read More
In place of the Negroni’s traditional red bitter aperitivo, Suze was the choice for the original White Negroni. There are a few of these to pick from these day’s too, some with very particular flavour profiles.
We step away from the White Negroni’s original formula and use Luxardo’s offering, as it’s closer to the red style aperitivos used in the classic Negroni. This also means that the 1:1:1 ratio of ingredients can be maintained, but as always, the choices are yours to make!
- 25 ml GIN (1 part)
- 25 ml LILLET BLANC (1 part)
- 25 ml LUXARDO BIANCO BITTER LIQUEUR (1 part)
How to make it
- 1 – Add all ingredients to your mixing glass, then fill with ice.
- 2 – Stir to chill and add dilution. As the alcohol strength is already lowered by inclusion of vermouth and bitter liqueur the stirring process is fairly brief, so be careful not to over dilute.
- 3 – When the perfect dilution point is reached (remember, use your nose and palate to find that exact moment), strain ingredients into a lowball glass.
- 4 – Fill glass with ice, ideally large block.
- 5 – Garnish and serve.
