Heston Blumenthal adds Lazy Mandarin Negroni to Waitrose range
Heston Blumenthal has added a new cocktail to his Heston from Waitrose food and drink range.
Called Lazy Mandarin Negroni, the drink offers a twist on the classic Italian negroni cocktail with a balance of bitterness and sweetness.
Blumenthal said: “Negroni has always been my drink of choice with its acidity and bitterness creating the perfect palette cleanser. For me, the orange notes are critical for the overall flavour of a negroni and I’ll be serving mine with a twist and squeeze of mandarin peel along with a sprig of fresh thyme to really accentuate the characteristics of this classic cocktail.”
Waitrose said the drink can be poured straight over ice or combined with prosecco to create a Negroni Sbagliato.
John Vine, Waitrose spirits buyer, said: “With searches for negroni on waitrose.com up 37% compared to last year, we know that our customers are looking to enjoy this delicious cocktail at home, and Heston’s Lazy Mandarin Negroni is perfect for just that.”
