Beer in a cocktail? OK, you could be forgiven for thinking “Have the RIH team been drinking?” The answer is no – we haven’t. But try one of the new cocktails available at the House of Peroni pop-up venue in London and we think you’ll agree that accompanied with the right ingredients, beer in cocktails works beautifully.
Our favourite? The Nerone is a surprising mélange of fresh and exotic flavours, served long – perfect for relaxed sipping, perhaps with a marinated olive or two to nibble on…
150ml-170ml Peroni Nastro Azzurro
20 ml lemon juice
10 ml hot chilli gomme (1kg caster sugar, 750ml water, 15 sliced Bird’s eye chillis – cooked for 15 minutes then strained.)
10 ml lapsang souchong gomme (1kg caster sugar, 750ml water, 20 Lapsang Souchong tea bags – cooked for 15 minutes then strained.)
20 ml passion fruit puree
Shake all ingredients together and then double strain into a long glass. Garnish with a passion fruit circle and a Bird’s eye chilli.
