Koeksuster Negroni…

Every year the bar industry all over the world gears up for Negroni Week – naturally as a celebration of this wonderful drink, but also to support charities in the bar / club or venue’s area or interest.

This year was no different and Johannesburg based Mootee bar got in on the action with a Koeksuster Negroni featuring Caperitif!

Quoting an article on Wanted: “The drink is made with Rooibos infused Campari, a koeksuster syrup which consists of vanilla and sunflower seeds and aromatic fortified wine. The result is then fatwashed with melted butter to round off the finish of every sip. This drink was designed to be a celebration of the future of South Africa, but also a staunch reminder of our unacceptable past. A prosperous future which is only possible, if all South Africans go that extra mile to reconcile our past and look to build a thriving future together.”
