3/4 oz. Doling Dry Vermouth
3/4 oz. Salers Aperitif
Prepare hollow ice sphere with hollow center. In a chilled mixing glass add all three ingredients. Stir until diluted 20%. In a double old fashioned glass put in a base layer of crushed ice (Just enough to hold ice sphere centers in the glass). Double strain VEEV Negroni into cavity in ice sphere. Navel orange oils around the rim of glass (disguard orange peel). Serve drink with a tea spoon let guest crack the ice sphere.
Double Old Fashioned
My inspiration comes from the Avery bar in Chicago. They serve a cocktail in a similar way and I think it’s amazing. I chose Negroni as its one of my favorite of the classics and a tip of that to Negroni week.
VEEV, now 70 Proof, is a handcrafted premium spirit, that is infused with just the right amount of Acai and other natural flavors like prickly pear and acerola cherry which makes it a better alternative to vodka. Crafted at our award winning distillery that is powered by renewable wind energy, VEEV is distilled in small batches to ensure we achieve a perfectly balanced taste. The result is a versatile, full-bodied spirit with a smooth finish. So go ahead, cheat on the harsh taste and same ole boring vodka you’ve grown tired of. #CheatOnVodka
