Nashgroni

Hopefully by now you're clued into the fact that we make cocktails with shit we like. Be it a classic booze or something small and new to the market, we love turning you on to the stuff you should be drinking.

So, listen up: here's two things you should be drinking in one. A Negroni and Corsair's Barrel Aged Gin.

We could go on and on (and we have) about how much we love a good Negroni. One of the many reasons we love this drink is how easily you can alter it with the substitution of ingredients. In the case of this cocktail, we've held back the Campari and reached instead for Cynar. Owned by Campari, Cynar is an artichoke-based amaro from Italy. Compared to Campari, the flavor is softer, fuller and rounder than its bright red cousin. 

The other key to this being a NASHgroni is the gin. Hailing from hometown hero Corsair Distillery, this barrel aged gin is unlike any other gin on the market. Though there are certainly other delicious gins that are aged in barrels, we know of no other that ages them in spiced rum barrels. This step gives their already delicious rum a level of additional spice and sweetness that pairs perfectly with Cynar in this cocktail.
