A whole week to celebrate Italy’s iconic cocktail starts on 13 September
Running this year from 13-19th September 2021, Negroni Week is also a great time to try unique twists on the classic cocktail. Whether you prefer the original recipe or with a contemporary twist, it’s time to reacquaint yourself with this elegant little number!
What makes a classic Negroni?
Negronis are traditionally equal parts gin, Campari and sweet vermouth. Purportedly invented at Caffè Casoni in Florence, Italy, when Count Camillo Negroni asked for a bolder retelling of the Americano cocktail, with gin replacing soda water.
Of course, in Chester, we love to embrace the quirky and unique – so we have created our very own Negroni trail in our beautiful, Roman city.

The Negroni Sbagliato, pronounced ‘spal-yacht-oh’ meaning mistake in Italian. This drink was first created when Mirko Stocchetti accidentally reached for a bottle of spumante instead of gin. It’s definitely not a mistake in our eyes, so let’s drop the gin and add some fizz.
