Claudia’s Spicy Negroni
“I’ll have a Spicy Negroni,” she states to the tattooed bartender, unintentionally harsh. Her freckles seem to twinkle at him and he smiles even though she just barked at him. The accent. No one can resist Claudia’s Brazilian accent, no matter what she says. She once told a bar patron to “shove off” and he stayed all night and tipped his wallet.
Sydney Shag & THE SIRENS: Heavy on the Vodka and a Little Bit Dirty is full of incredible women who are sassy, full of moxie, and always up for another round. Claudia, “famous for her family status, her fiancé, her freckles, and for having a flare for the finer things (make that the finest)” orders a Spicy Negroni in our first scene and it sets her up as quite a fiery and fashionable character. In my upcoming cocktail book, you’ll find this delicious recipe for one of her favorite drinks, and so many more. Today, I’m giving this one away!
Spicy Negroni Royale
Add all of these wonderful ingredients into your mixing glass and fill with ice. Stir vigorously and pour over a beautiful piece of ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with a chile, a chocolate, or for flare, a flower. Sip away!
Mermaid Tips: I find all my favorite bitters and more at Bitters & Bottles in San Fransisco (and soon Austin, TX). I found a gorgeous bottle of Sotol at Desert Door in Driftwood, Texas and recommend Wahaka Mezcal, which has a beautiful logo and will be a standout on your bar cart or shelf. The spectacular glasses are from The Elan Collective.
I think you’ll find this drink is fashionable, fabulous and fantastic for Claudia and YOU 🥃 Learn more about her, and find your favorite character (and cocktail), buy your copy and read more of this delightful sitcom style book here!
