A blend of gin, two different vermouths, and Campari. Bottled and aged for at least six weeks.
Allergen: sulphur dioxide and sulphites
Glowing red, the Negroni is both sophisticated and simple, and is definitely for a grown up palette. For many, it is simply too bitter a taste. It is the perfect aperitif and brings the taste of Italian sunshine into a glass.
Pour over ice in a rocks glass and stir until freezing. Add a slice of orange.
History and Reviews of the Myatt's Fields Negroni
We used to prefix all of the cocktails here with MF for Myatt’s Fields, because we felt our drinks deserved it. Eventually we dropped that, as people found it confusing. However, the MF on the Negroni was also a nod in the direction of Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction, and the BMF wallet he memorably asks Jules for in the diner. This is a BMF powerhouse Negroni designed to show off the intense end of the Negroni scale, and it is a beauty.
Our Negroni has been aged for at least 6 weeks. That ageing has wiped out the edge of a newly opened Campari, but retains all of its bitterness. In its place is a rounded out mellow cocktail, with a fruity opening, a bitter middle act, and a long, long ending that stays on the tongue.
We think about this Negroni even when we aren’t drinking it, and that must say something.
