Pink grapefruit zest twist


Wayne Collins, this drink’s creator, originally used equal parts as is usual for a classic Negroni and after trying various other formulations we’ve found this works best. Wayne also specifies a grapefruit zest twist and this makes the drink. However, be warned, this is a drink for aficionados of bittersweet aperitifs and Suze. We love it!


Created in 2001 by Wayne Collins at VinExpo. Bordeaux, France using Plymouth Gin for Nick Blacknell, then director of Plymouth Gin. Later, Simon Ford, who was the Plymouth Gin ambassador, introduced the drink to Audrey Saunders in the early days of her Pegu Club where the drink became a hit on the menu.
