Frozen Negroni Recipe

20150706-frozen-negroni-vicky-wasik-1.jpg

In hot weather, you'll want to batch up this sophisticated frozen cocktail, a slushie version of the classic Negroni. The bitter flavors make it especially refreshing.

Why this recipe works:

  • Chilling the mixture in the freezer ahead of time helps keep dilution to a minimum for a less watery slushie. Due to alcohol content, it won't freeze solid.
  • You might notice that this drink doesn't have a classic 1:1:1 ratio. Dialing back the Campari and sweet vermouth makes for a more balanced bittersweet bite that doesn't overwhelm the gin.

Note: For a thicker slushie, add an additional 1/2 cup ice to each batch.
