Negroni Svegliato

Salvatore Calabrese, Salvatore at Playboy, London, UK

“Inspired by The City That Never Sleeps, this is one of a selection of speciality cocktails created especially for my Bar in Las Vegas ‘Bound by Salvatore’ at the Cromwell Hotel.

“I use the traditional Italian household coffee pot to prepare a uniquely flavoured coffee, by replacing the water with Martini Gran Lusso to produce the key ingredient in this my twist on my favorite Negroni Cocktail,” Salvatore Calabrese

35ml (1.16 oz) Italian Espresso Moka coffee made with Martini Gran LussoNegroni Svegliato

35ml (1.16 oz) Gin

20ml (.66 oz) Campari

Prepare the coffee in a 3 cup Italian Espresso Moka coffee pot.  Make the moka coffee in the usual way using the Martini Gran Lusso in place of water. Allow to cool and store in the refrigerator.  Pour all the ingredients into a mixing glass filled with ice. Stir well and strain into an old fashioned glass with an ice ball and garnish with a twist of orange

gaz sez:   maes·tro ˈmīstrō/noun: a distinguished musician, especially a conductor of classical music.  With this formula, Salvatore, a dear friend, once again proves that he’s more than worthy of the title “Maestro.”  This drink is an orchestra in a glass, and you can hear each and every instrument very clearly as they crescendo to an incredible peak on the palate.  An inspired drink.
