The Rogroni Sundowner – Cocktail Of The Week

Cocktail of the Week
Rogroni aka Rogue Negroni is a lightweight version of a traditional Negroni

The Rogroni cocktail is a softer, less bitter version of a traditional Negroni, and is a perfect sundowner for those who are new to sipping a cocktail that is less sweet.

It uses Regal Rogue The Bold Red , which is a semi dry vermouth lead by beautiful Australian native botanicals. It compliments the softer Italian aperitif, Aperol, which again is a lighter version of the Italian sip, Campari.

When blended together, you get a smooth cocktail that is easy to drink and enjoyable as a pre-dinner mix, with some light nibbles.
