Picture if you will a libation so popular it warrants its own week of celebration…
This is International Negroni Week, a week in which bars and restaurants take part in the global celebration of one of the greatest classic cocktails of all time.
The stylish Negroni is believed to have its origins in the Café Casoni in Florence, Italy in 1919 and was invented by Count Camille Negroni.
Master Bartender Scott Hartegan and Lead Bartender Nic Wallace have given this timeless cocktail an outstanding edge with equal parts Gin and Campari, along with Vermouth and an orange twist. The addition of 1/2 oz. of Cardamaro adds an increased balance and complexity making Sea Island’s version of the ageless Negroni positively brilliant.
