LCBO Food & Drink Holiday 2020

Negroni This classic, with gin, bitter red

aperitivo and sweet red vermouth, gets a simple spin in a brilliantly clear variation. Elevate your technique to the max by containing each cocktail within a hollow ice sphere.

Ice-ball moulds come as minimalist singles or maximalist multi-sphere trays.
