If you’ve been to A.O.C, Tavern or Lucques in Los Angeles in the last couple of months, you might have tasted this delicious cocktail from Christiaan Rollich, who manages the bar programs there.
He blends Harry’s Berries strawberries with spices for a refreshing spin on a classic Negroni. In his new book “Bar Chef,” he shares this recipe and more of his favorite drink recipes for all seasons using local produce.
Rollich makes his own aperitivo and sweet vermouth from scratch. You can do the same following the recipes in his cookbook or simply use store-bought options. His version is great for entertaining because you can make a big batch of Negroni mix ahead of time and finish it with an orange twist just before serving.
