It is not so good for my wallet (but good for me!) that my work place is only about 10 minutes from Frankfurt city because every time I go there after work I find something special. This time I found in an Italian shop the Amaro Nonino Quintessentia, a grape distillate infused with mountain herbs and aged in barrique. I inaugurated this liqueur with the Negronino, a cocktail creation from mixologist Maxence Traverse, Hong Kong.
2cl Amaro Nonino Quintessentia
2.5cl gin (the original recipe asks for Berry Bros No. 3 Gin)
2.5cl Carpano Antica Formula Vermouth
Decoration: Pink Grapefruit Twist
Fill an old-fashioned glass with ice, pour in the ingredients and mix them all. Garnish with a pink grapefruit twist.
A very aromatic bitter cocktail, really a wonderful surprise!
