This festive-take on a Negroni was created for a special charity fundraiser episode of the livestream musical series Sips and Songs with Jacyn and Joey – which streamed on December 20th. I was honored to be a guest cocktail maker and offer this exclusive recipe.
For this take on a quasi-Negroni, I swapped vermouth with Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur – a French liqueur made with ginger, vanilla, and honey, offering a sweet and spicy flavor to the drink.
I also spritz up the cocktail with some club soda, just for a touch of bubbly giggles. It is supposed to be a cheery time of year after all.
The final touches include an orange rind or wheel, and a cinnamon stick – which not only adds a cool aesthetic, but as it sits in the drink, the cinnamon carries through offering another layer of warmth to this cocktail.Jump to Recipe
