pink pepper negroni
 

25ml Bombay Sapphire gin
25m1 Martini Rosso (red vermouth)
25m1 Campari or bitter liqueur
5 whole pink peppercorns
1 blood or regular orange

These quantities make one delicious cocktail, but as you need to leave this to steep overnight, it's well worth making a big batch to get ahead bra party, or for gifting.

And, of course, if you want to make a classic negroni, leave out the peppercorns and steeping stage.

To flavour your negroni, simply mix together the gin, vermouth, Campari or bitter liqueur and peppercorns and leave overnight or for a couple of days, so the flavours infuse, leaving you with a light, sweet. bitter, spicy dimension to your cocktail. Stir into a glass of ice and add a nice slice of orange to garnish.
