Change up a classic with honey-infused gin

This Negroni features honey gin, a slight tweak with big results.

The version of the classic Negroni we serve at Parish Hall in Brooklyn features Barr Hill gin (elegant balance of juniper and honey) and our house-made sweet vermouth (clove and quinine). It’s a cool and refreshing cocktail with warm spice and lots of orange and mull-spices. We thought about finding a more local substitute for Campari, but it's such an excellently made apéritif and why mess with it's perfection!

Most everyone knows the origins of the famous Italian cocktail, the Negroni. After I made the sweet vermouth using red wine (as opposed to traditional white), which came about in order to complement the sweet honey-gin, the cocktail was a very dark red, as opposed to the
candy apple red of a traditional negroni. I remarked "Man, this Negroni is red." Which of course is redundant, so the name stuck.

Servings: 1 cocktail


1 1/4 ounces Barr Hill gin
1 1/4 ounces Campari
1 1/4 ounces sweet vermouth
  1. In a mixing glass, add ingredients and cracked ice. Stir for at least 15 seconds.
  2. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.  Orange peel twist and garnish.
