this post was created in collaboration with SeekOut Seltzer while this is a sponsored post it is with product that I believe in with a company that reflects my values. Plus, I really like their products. The opinions are entirely my own.
A negroni without the negroni- instead of campari sub the refreshing slightly tart goodness of Seekout’s raspberry+meyer lemon hard seltzer and you have a brighter bubbly bigger version of the classic cocktail.
I love campari- if you want a campari drink without the gin and sweet vermouth this slushie is A+
looking for some other cocktails made with the seekout hard seltzer?
- or the session piña colada with the pineapple+passionfruit hard seltzer
- plus more coming soon
the prevailing wisdom is to stick with a london dry gin like Tanqueray, that said, I did not. I used the ransom “highly malted” dry gin. Aviation is always a good choice for a widely available american dry gin as well, plus Ryan.
I have two bottles of sweet vermouth at home the super fancy one and the inexpensive one, there are subtle differences but not enough for me to choose for you, like the gin this is largely a matter of choice
the hard seltzer
this recipe/cocktail was developed with the raspberry meyer lemon seekout hard seltzer in mind, to take an already good thing and add a layer of softness and complexity. as an added bonus at our house the Mr. who actively dislikes campari is delighted by this cocktail which is just good stuff 😉
