That's Negroni Sour for you, ladies and gentlemen
In this world of on the rocks, are you a shaken or stirred person? We are talking about being a cocktail person, because we already like you. But then again, the divide among them is also quite remarkable. Some are pure takers of vodka-based cocktails, some prefer gin or brandy or tequila or rum or whiskey based cocktails only. But we still like you.
Today, we're talking about a special kind of cocktail. It's Negroni Sour o'clock according to our watches. But what's that? Read up here...
So, Negroni is an iconic Italian drink made of one part gin, one part vermouth rosso (red, semi-sweet), and one part Campari and is garnished with orange peel. Sour is a mixed drink containing a base liquor, lemon or lime juice, and a sweetener (like triple sec, simple syrup, grenadine, or pineapple juice). Some sours also have egg whites. Yup!
But Negroni Sour is a combination of the two with frothy egg whites in it. It has a citrusy lift of orange and lemon juices in it. And is perfect for summer sipping. Would you care for one? There are many loyals, we tell you.
Where can you try it? For starters at Jazz and Grills, Le Meridien Goa Calangute. They're celebrating a Negroni Week with all things Negroni. Like Classic Negroni, Negroni Sour, Frozen Negroni, Negroni Sbagliato (Sbagliato means “messed up” or “mistaken” in Italian) and Kokum Basil Negroni (with kokum & basil infused soda served in a decanter).

Negroni Week is a charitable programme organised by Imbibe Magazine and Campari and the proceeds go towards a charity. Le Meridien Goa has chosen to tie up with WE, an international charity and education partner working to empower and educate young people in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
The week started on June 4 and is concluding on June 9. Interesting!
We would definitely like to try them out. What about you?
