Negroni Carbonated 15 Feb 2011

Hello Jamie, what about the "normal" home drinker: Will a soda syphon with a couple of negronis and some water (to emulate the dilution) suffice when placed in the freezer for the necessary time to chill thouroughly? Greetings from Germany, Ruben

A bit too much booze incorporated into this drink for my taste ;D

"Everybody knows by now that fresh juices are essential for a good drink." However, people that watch only a few of the videos on the first page will not get that drift if they aren't told so in every video. Furthermore, you can always use the time squeezing the lime for going deeper into the history of the drink and what makes it particularily special. I also miss the old fotos on the video overview page, where you could see all ingredients used. The fotos with the white background make them look all the same. Some color, some type of glass, some letters to form the drink's name. Not much to raise my interest. Greetings from Germany Ruben

There's also a relatively young bitters company in Germany named "The Bitter Truth" and their product range includes TBT Orange Bitters. Great bitter in my opinion, but I have to admit that I didn't try any other orange bitters yet. I have seen Robert use The Bitter Truth Orange Flower Water for his Ramos Gin Fizz :D Regarding the drink: I don't have Grand Marnier here and am also not willing to buy it solely for this cocktail, can Cointreau fix the hole? Grand Marnier contains Cognac, right? How about a mixture of Cognac and Cointreau? Ruben

The best "not-so-well-known" cocktails I've had for a while. Thanks again for sharing. I made it with the following ingredients: 20ml Tanqueray No Ten 20ml Noilly Prat Original Dry 20ml Carpano Antica Formula 15ml fresh Orange Juice 15ml Giffard Premium Curacao Triple Sec (way better than Cointreau in my oppinion, didn't have Grand Marnier) 2 Orange Zests 2 dashes TBT Orange Bitters

Greetings from Germany Robert, I must say that I adore your videos and that I have already been inspired to mix the Rosita since I am a big fan of the Campari. However, having seen a few more videos I am concerned about you always using Martini Rosso as your sweet vermouth. In my opinion, its sweetness is kind of a... smack-you-in-the-face-sweetness, if you know what I mean. Have you tried Carpano Antica Formula? It enhanced my Negroni by such a degree, I will never buy a different sweet vermouth again :D Its sweetness is subtle and yet it is of the same "amount" as the sweetness Martini & Rossi products is. Blabla. Sorry for wasting your time with my wall of text. Ruben

Video Clicks tells me you are using Fee Brother's Orange Flower Water. Isn't that the The Bitter Truth one though?
