The 924 Espresso Negroni
If we’re talking modern day classics, the Espresso Martini is without rival.
At The 924 Cocktail Co we share our space with a local coffee roastery (1961 Coffee Roasters) and there was really no choice but to see what happens when you mix The 924 Negroni and espresso. The result is rich, fruity, reminiscent of Black Forest gateau and very popular when we open the doors for Negroni Nights!
30ml Classic 924 Negroni
30ml Freshly brewed espresso (we use 1961 Coffee Black Betty)
30ml Mr Black coffee liqueur
10ml Simple syrup
- Mix all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake until chilled
- Strain into a chilled coupe
- Garnish with 3 coffee beans
From the cognoscenti
We find a touch of syrup helps balance the bitterness of the Negroni, however Black Betty is a dark roast and if using a lighter roasted bean, the syrup could be left out. For a boozier option, 30ml vodka can also be added.
