We here at Lifestyle Asia enjoy many a cocktail, but there’s nothing we love more than a well-made Negroni. There’s a reason why the classic, three-ingredient recipe has stood the test of time: The combination of equal parts gin, vermouth and Campari results in a bold and aromatic drink that functions just as well as an aperitivo as it does an after-hours nightcap.
Modern bartenders love to put a spin on the classic drink, and while it’s hard to beat the original, it’s always fun to sample new variations around town. With Negroni Week 2017 almost here, more than two dozen of Hong Kong’s best bars are coming up with their own unique interpretations to participate in the global charity initiative. Here’s where to go to sample some of the best twists on the classic drink, with part of the proceeds going towards a good cause.
