Your guide to alcohol free Negroni

Dec 20, 2021

This classic cocktail is over 100 years old, but it's set to be one of the trendiest drinks of the summer.

The Negroni is traditionally made from made of one part gin, one part vermouth rosso and one part Aperitif. It was invented at a cafe in Florence when a french general, Pascal Olivier Count de Negroni asked the bartender to make him something stronger than his usual Americano by adding gin instead of soda water. 

100 years on the Negroni is one of the most popular cocktails in the world. And, thanks to the rise of non-alcoholic gin, I'm very pleased to say that there are lots of options when it comes to alcohol free Negroni mocktails.
