Negroni Cocktail

17th November 2022

Our Bloody Negroni is a classic recipe with a twist. Assistant General Manager Sam explains how this signature cocktail gained a less conventional name.

“Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin comes from the Yarra Valley in Melbourne, Australia. This rich, deep purple gin is made in their cool climate by steeping whole shiraz grapes in their Original Rare Dry Gin for eight weeks. The result is “Bloody delicious” hence the name and gives a lovely balance between the sweetness and ginny goodness in this recipe.”


25ml Four Pillars Bloody Shiraz Gin
25ml Campari
25ml Cocchi Vermouth di Torino
Rocks glass

We have chosen to garnish with a beetroot coral, also known in the culinary world as a lace tuile:

Beetroot juice 3tbs
Flour 10g
Vegetable oil 60ml

To make the beetroot coral:

  • Mix together the beetroot juice, flour and vegetable oil in a bowl to form a batter.
  • Transfer to a small frying pan and fry over a medium heat without stirring, until the coral has formed a thin layer in the base of the pan.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and leave the coral to cool, harden and form a thin crisp.


For the rest of the Negroni:

  • Add all the remaining ingredients into a mixing glass.
  • Add ice to the mixing glass and stir until cold.
  • Strain into rocks glass and add fresh ice to garnish.
  • Add the beetroot coral to finish.

*Tip: You can stir the ingredients directly in the rocks glass if you don’t have a mixer at home.
