Smoky Negroni Sour⁣

"There comes a juncture each winter where my efforts at overwintering the rosemary reach their inevitable sad conclusion. But it occurred to me that I have more than once been frustrated by my inability to get good smoke from a sprig of fresh green rosemary, and voila: perfect use of dried out, nearly-dead rosemary. That hint of foresty smoke was just perfect here, as was the floral/herbal Linden honey from Bee Seasonal's German collection!⁣⁣"

A Note from Feedfeed

A twist on a classic, this negroni is balanced with a good squeeze of lemon of a nice sour cocktail finish. Winter is almost over so enjoy the last few weeks with our community's delicious winter cocktails! Cheers!
