This recipe is our co-founder Andri's favourite – her go-to for any occasion. Smoky and citrus-forward, the Burnt Orange Negroni should be on your Christmas cocktail list!

Char a whole orange on the grill or with a blow torch and set aside to cool down.

Combine the gin, vermouth, Aperol, cordial liqueur, and grapefruit bourbon bitters in a mixing glass over ice.

Add a slice of the charred orange, squeeze the rest of the juice into the shaker, and shake well.

Pour into a rocks glass and drink up!

Side note: You can char the orange beforehand and keep it in the refrigerator for a few days.
