The Frozen Negroni for Summer Drinking

The frozen negroni is what you’re looking for to cool off on these stifling hot summer days. A bite of bitter and that cool ice is the perfect refresher.

I love a good negroni…maybe because I’m a fan of gin or maybe it’s because I’m a fan of Campari, but whatever it is the combination of the two is what I’m looking for in a cocktail. Today’s recipe takes it one step further in that it becomes your favorite summer refresher.

Frozen Negroni

I’ve already posted one slushie drink this summer – The Blackberry Slush. I guess it’s just these hot temps we’re getting here in Texas. It’s really getting to me these days. I’m not a person who really likes hot and humid weather (is anybody?). I can take the heat and humidity when there’s a tropical breeze blowing, like in Hawaii, but we don’t have any of that going on here in Texas. Nope, just hot and humid.

I’ve also posted a Jell-o shot negroni on here before too. So I guess I like to have a little fun with my cocktails.

This frozen negroni is so delicious, and refreshing, I’m guessing it might become your new summertime favorite cocktail. I know I’ll be enjoying a few of these around the pool this summer.

Recipe type: Drinks
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 4 ounces gin (I used Tanqueray)
  • 3 ounces sweet vermouth
  • 3 ounces Campari
  • 3 cups of ice cubes
  • orange (cut into wedges for serving)
Instructions
  1. If you think to make these ahead of time, mix the gin, vermouth and Campari into a small container and pop it in the freezer overnight. This thickens the liquids and makes it blend really nicely with the ice. It won't freeze because of the alcohol that's in it.
  2. Add the ice to your blender then pour the liquids in.
  3. Cover the blender and blitz until the ice is all the same consistency.
  4. Pour into glasses and serve with an orange wedge.
