The Perfect Negroni? Why yes, it is.

Cocktails are best when they are trusted to the abandon of minimalism. Few well-chosen and finely crafted ingredients mixed together with a knowing gesture, and finally topped-off with just the right garnish. Bonus points for an epicurean touch in this new era of mixology.

This is true in the case of the Negroni. Deceptively simple with only three ingredients: Campari, sweet vermouth, and (traditionally) gin. We opted for Perfect Vodka instead, which turned out to be a very good decision on a rainy, tropical afternoon. Vivid red, practically glowing. As sexy in the daylight as it is at night. Heavy but not sweet. It satisfies both sides of the palette at once.

We enjoyed our after-work drink at 1000 North, the celebrity-owned waterfront restaurant that features an American Modern menu and sophisticated mid-century interiors that will have you making mental notes during your stay.

“I think the Negroni is the perfect cocktail…It is both aperitif and digestive. It’s a rare drink that can do that.” -Anthony Bourdain

Lucky for us, Galo Biaggio was behind the bar when we arrived. He made a perfectly balanced drink that was beautifully presented.

Cocktails like this easily become your go-to, signature drink. It’s classic and style-defining.

So, cheers to that!

The new drink photos that are making us swoon.

Drink photography is something that we are passionate about. Working with beautifully photogenic ingredients gets us like WOAH pretty fast. We only wish these pics convey the true loveliness of the taste of these bad boys. Try for yourself, and send us photos of your work!
