A Festive Spiced Negroni: A Classic Recipe With a Christmas Twist

Festive Spiced Negroni

Delicious Festive Spiced Negroni and A Classic Negroni

This is a classic gin cocktail, it’s a bitter cocktail so do bear that in mind but it really is a delicious concoction! We have two iterations of this cocktail so we thought we’d give you both and you can choose. The first is just a simple Negroni, then there is the option to make it a Christmas Negroni. The festive version is essentially the same recipe but the gin is first infused with spices to get that Christmas-y flavour 🎄

Infusing the Gin

For the Gin infusion (for the festive, spiced version):

  • 3 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 whole cloves
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 cardamom pods, crushed
  • 1 tsp black peppercorns
  • 200ml Douglas-Fir gin

Toast the cinnamon, cloves, star anise, cardamom and peppercorns in a   pan for 5 mins. Remove from the heat and leave too cool. Tip all the spices into a jar and pour over the gin. Seal and chill for 48 hrs.


For the Cocktail itself:

  • Ice
  • 25ml Douglas-Fir Gin / Infused Douglas-Fir Gin
  • 25ml vermouth
  • 25ml Campari
  • Orange slices and fresh bay leaves to garnish
Festive Spiced Negroni



Fill your glass with Ice.

Put the gin, vermouth and Campari into a glass.

Garnish with orange slices and bay.
