How To Mix The Perfect Non-Alcoholic Negroni

The Negroni is, quite simply put, the perfect cocktail! Maybe it’s because with equal parts Campari, gin and sweet vermouth you can’t go wrong in the making of this simple but powerful drink that brings out an old-world sophistication from its drinkers – be they young or seasoned alike.  The Negroni is a summer classic that never disappoints. It has been loved for its refreshing taste and easygoingness, but the truth of it all? You can drink this cocktail year-round because there’s always time to get your hands on one!

With the emergence of non-alcoholic spirits over the past few years, there has never been a better time to try out an alcohol-free version of this classic cocktail. To make it exceptionally easy for you, we have tracked down a complete Negroni set that will let you make this classic cocktail in a matter of minutes.  The classic recipe is always 1:1:1, which makes it super easy to remember.

In this non-alcoholic version, we use Lyre’s Dry London Spirit + Italian Orange + Apéritif Rosso. The Dry London Spirit brings flavours of juniper and citrus, while the Italian Orange brings blood orange and red citrus before the Apéritif Rosso ends with caramel, citrus pith and cacao to bring balance to the classic Negroni. We added our own take on this classic with some Kaffir lime leaves instead of the traditional orange peel.

30ml Lyre’s Dry London Spirit
30ml Lyre’s Italian Orange
30ml Lyre’s Apéritif Rosso
4 Kaffir Lime leaves
Fill a mixing glass or cocktail shaker with ice and add all three ingredients.
Rip 3 kaffir lime leaves to release the oils and add to the mixing glass.
Using a cocktail spoon, give the spirits a few quick turns before straining into a tumbler filled with large cubes of ice.
Garnish with a single kaffir lime leaf.
