The Ritz Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon Participates in Negroni Week from September 18 to 24

Saturday, September 16, 2023


“The Negroni is, quite simply, a perfect cocktail,” says André Ferreira da Costa, Bartender at the Ritz Bar at Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon. “Maybe it’s the perfect three-ingredient cocktail with equal parts Campari, gin, and sweet vermouth.”

The classic Negroni couldn’t be easier to make, proving that, like the three little piggies, the Musketeers, and Aladdin’s Genie, who grants not one, but three wishes – the best things really do come in threes.

Intended to be sipped, the Negroni is bitter, sweet, dry, and refreshing all at once. For Negroni Week, André has created three enticing variations of the ruby red coloured cocktail: Arabica Lovers, The Unusual Gathering and Spicy Mango-Tango Negroni.

While the drink’s exact origins remain fairly uncertain, it is said that a full century ago, an Italian Count by the name of Camillo Negroni stepped into his favourite café in Florence and pleaded for something stronger than his typical Americano. The bartender Fosco Scarselli substituted gin for soda, added an orange peel rather than the typical lemon peel, and thus, the Negroni came to be.

“Ernest Hemingway, Anthony Bourdain and Orson Welles were all fans of the drink. So if you haven’t tried this classic, we invite you to visit us at the Ritz Bar and try our Negroni with a twist,” says Alejandro Lopez, Director of Food & Beverage at the Hotel.
