Cocktails at Home
Posted on 2012/02/12 13:41:56 (February 2012).
[Tuesday 7th February 2012]
Made a few cocktails at home this evening, and decided in order to help enjoy them a bit more I'd put on my suit. Cocktails always taste better in a suit.
I made each of my current three favourites - a Negroni, an Aviation and a Pink Gin. With the possible exception of the Pink Gin (they did a particularly good version at the Savoy) I think I prefer the way I make each of these to any versions I've had in a bar. No bars ever seem to have creme de violette, so they can never do an Aviation properly. For the Negroni, I've realised I actually prefer it made with Aperol rather than Campari - again an ingredient you don't so often find in bars.
