2020 may have been different in many (many!) ways but we still had #negroniweek and since a South African Negroni is a firm favourite for some of us (me…) here are two unique versions of the iconic cocktail we loved this year.

Julian Short‘s Rooibos Negroni

30ml Primal Union Gin
15ml Suze
15ml Campari
30ml Caperitif
Batched and infused with Rooibos tea

Joaquinabe’s Rum Negroni

25ml Floating Dutchman rum
25ml Caperitif
25ml @joaquinabe ‘s cherry liqueur
Dash of Renosterbos infused olive oil and a big block of ice (Garnish with a sprig of dried Renosterbos).


Imbibe Magazine launched Negroni Week in 2013 as a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charities around the world. Find out more, here. But don’t limit  your intake of this drink (or your support of worthy charities) to one week a year!
