Enzoni-ish

Enzoni-ish

August 20, 2020

We’ve always aimed for easy to throw together drinks through our Shrubbie series, but the Enzoni has been on my radar for quite some time and it’s too good not to share. It was created by Vincenzo Errico while bartending at Milk & Honey in New York City. It’s the love child of a Negroni and Gin Sour. And really while this Shrubbie calls for some very particular, not so common(as in you probably don’t have Campari sitting in your liquor zone) ingredients, it’s still very easy to throw together. 


Campari on it’s own is extremely bitter, but this cocktail is so well balanced you would never know. We’ve added Lemon Ginger Shrub in for the simple syrup that is called for in the original drink, and as always it’s a great substitute.

RECIPE
Enzoni-ish

Ready in 5 minutes

Serves 1 drink

Ingredients

  • 1 oz Gin
  • 1 oz Campari
  • .75 oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • .5 oz Lemon Ginger Shrub
  • 5 White Grapes

Preparation

  1. Muddle grapes in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add other ingredients and shake with ice.
  3. Strain into glass(we like the old fashioned glass) over fresh ice.
  4. Garnish with a few grapes.

Notes

The white grapes in this Shrubbie are intended as the substitute for the sweet vermouth that you would use in a Negroni. The fruit adds a truly phenomenal backing to this drink and helps bind all of the complex ingredients together.

The first time we made this we used a large piece of ice, cracked, and shook it over that. It seemed to “smooth” out the drink, not sure how this is possible but we recommend. As always, any old ice will do just fine.
