About this Cocktail

My 19th century Fix take on the Negroni named after the city where the classic was allegedly invented in 1919. Fixes differ from Daisies in that they utilize pineapple syrup instead of curaçao (later Yellow Chartreuse, raspberry syrup, grenadine, etc.), are built on crushed ice, and are ornately garnished.

Ingredients:
  • 3/4 oz Gin
  • 3/4 oz Sweet Vermouth
  • 3/4 oz Campari
  • 3/4 oz Pineapple Syrup
  • 1/2 oz Lemon Juice
Preparation:

Shake with ice, strain into a double old fashioned glass, fill with crushed ice, and garnish with berries in season (here, 2 pineapple leaves).

    Please can you used pineapple juice instead of the syrup
  • Frederic Yarm
    While I made my pineapple syrup by layering 1:1 simple over small chunks of pineapple, others utilize pineapple juice + sugar to make their syrup. I have done the same in between pineapple fruit method batches. Make it 1:1 with sugar; easy to do in small batches in the microwave (here, 1/2 oz pineapple juice + 1/2 oz simple will yield a little over 3/4 oz syrup). It's not the same silky subtle elegance, but it is close enough in a pinch.
