Happy World Gin Day!!!

It’s #WorldGinDay !!! 
But, I also had some leftover strawberry-infused Campari that I didn't want to waste, so I decided to create a summer edition of the most iconic Italian drink, the Negroni.

However, I was looking for a bold spirit that could stand up to the bittersweetness of the infused Campari.

Luckily, in the last sample box I received from my friends at Cinoco, there was this mysterious bottle of Mexican gin that had been finished in Mezcal casks. 

This intriguing gin, Cantina Verde, seemed like the perfect candidate. It boasts a fresh taste with a distinctive flavour and a subtle hint of agave. The creators describe it as "Oaxaca in a bottle." In addition to agave, the main ingredients of this unique gin include juniper, coriander, lemon, cardamom, and cinnamon.

NOT a Mezcal Negroni

30ml Cantera Verde Gin (Mezcal finish)
30ml Punt e Mes sweet vermouth
30ml Campari, strawberry infused

This is a quick and easy to mix drink: add everything to a tumbler with ice, give it a good stir for 15 seconds. Garnish with orange.
