The Cold Drip Coffee negroni first came to my attention at Eau De Vie Melbourne’s launch of their Cocktail book: Shaken & Stirred, Flamed & Thrown a few years ago. Their Cup O’Camillo (Cold Drip Coffee Negroni) was one of the cocktails served, made with house-made sweet vermouth and cold drip coffee.
Cold drip coffee is made by slowly dripping cold, filtered water through lightly roasted ground coffee for a period of ten hours. The result is a fuller flavoured coffee without the acidic oils typically found in coffee extracted at higher temperatures. They are readily available in supermarkets and are usually found in the fresh smoothie/juice section.
If you want to make your coffee Negroni with a bit more oomph, you could always use Mr Black Coffee Liqueur!
