Recipe | Our Rose Negroni Cocktail

Combining two of our very favourite things – tea and gin – into one delightful cocktail, our Rose Negroni is a gently sweet, floral and oh-so-Fortnum's take on a truly iconic cocktail.

The ingredients

Fortnum’s London Dry Gin

Fortnum’s Rose Pouchong Tea

Martini Ambrato

Amaro Ciociaro

Orange Bitters

Rose Petals.

The recipe

1) To create the Rose Negroni’s distinctive main ingredient, Rose Pouchong-infused Gin, simply add 3 Rose Pouchong silky tea bags to 100ml of Fortnum’s Gin. Leave to cold-infuse in the refrigerator.

2) After 1 hour of infusing, remove the gin from the fridge. Place a handful of ice cubes into a glass, and pour in one 25ml measure.

3) Add 35ml Martini Ambrato, 15ml Amaro Ciociaro, 2 drops of orange bitters, and stir.

4) Finally, garnish with the rose petals and prepare to fall in love...
