Review and Jaffa Cake Negroni Cocktail Recipe
This Video features this awesome brand new JAFFA CAKE GIN from Master of Malt. A really lovely Chocolatey Orangey Gin that is perfect for Cocktails. And it just so happens, it makes the Perfect Negroni Cocktail Recipe. The Negroni is a Traditional Italian Cocktail, first created in a Café in Florence, in 1919. It stems from the Americano Cocktail which is a mix of Campari, Vermouth and Soda.
The Jaffa Cake Gin itself is lovely. You don't get a massive Juniper Hit, but it's there. But what you do get is a lovely orange flavour first and foremost. But then on the finish, BOOOOM, that's where the Chocolate notes come out to play. This really is just Liquid Jaffa Cake and if you're like me and love your Jaffa Cakes, then you are seriously going to LOVE THIS.
How to Drink Jaffa Cake Gin
Mixing this up as a Drink, well you have a few options. But in truth, I haven't finished playing yet. I didn't get a chance with the first bottle because Mummy Barman claimed it and polished the rest of with her Favourite Ginger Ale!
I've had a decent go with Lemonade, that worked really well. For me, I personally wouldn't drink it with Tonic Water, but I can see plenty who would enjoy it. For me though, this Negroni recipe is the BEST Negroni I have ever tasted. It is truly remarkable. As I write this, I've seen a few other Bartenders play about with infusing Campari with Chocolate. Honestly, I never would have contemplated that, but now I get it, because this Gin works so amazingly well as a Negroni, that Chocolate and Campari are a match made in heaven. And the orange is an Added Bonus too!!
The other way I found to enjoy this Gin was as a Spritz. I added Lixir Blood Orange & Cinnamon Tonic and Prosecco and it worked a treat!
