Cocktail of the Week: Classic Negroni at 45 Park Lane

By Emma Reynolds

Classic Negroni at 45 Park Lane, London

  • 25 ml Campari
  • 25 ml Antica Formula
  • 25 ml Tanqueray Gin
  • Orange Peel

To create this classic Negroni, pour gin, Antica Formula and Campari into a mixing glass filled with ice cubes. Stir for 8-10 seconds with a long bar spoon, and use a cocktail strainer to pour the chilled liquid into a stemless Burgundy glass over a large piece of ice. Squeeze the orange peel and drop it into your glass for the perfect orange essence.

It’s no secret that 45 Park Lane, a Dorchester Collection Hotel, in London has the city’s best Negroni, which is served within the hotel’s Bar 45. The hotel has a comprehensive Negroni program that celebrates the drink; guests can order a Classic Negroni (pictured here), The Vintage Negroni or The Aged Negroni (aged in an American oak barrel for eight weeks). The hotel even introduced a Negroni Trolley service, which can be enjoyed within Bar 45 or called into guestrooms, where a mixologist will craft you a Negroni in the comfort of your room.

Classic Negroni

Recently, Bar 45 introduced a masterclass called Negroni Nights to celebrate the 100 years of the Negroni. The series of classes are run by Bar 45’s manager, Francesco Orefici, and educates guests on the history of the cocktail and also includes a mixology class on how to master the recipe. The events will also have canapé pairings from chef David McIntyre, which perfectly complement your Negroni.

Whether you’re staying at the hotel or just passing by, 45 Park Lane has been one of the city’s chicest and most exclusive hangouts since the 1960s, where the city’s rich and famous would gather when it was The Playboy Club. Since then, it has transformed into an elegant and historic accommodation with only 45 guest rooms, exceptional food and beverage outlets and the perfect stay while in the city. The hotel overlooks Hyde Park and pairs classic London architecture with a modern flair.
