Batch Negroni

Easy Entertaining with a Batch Negroni


Bottle o’ Negroni

Made by Jena Ellenwood

I cannot take credit for the creation of the Negroni cocktail, nor can I take credit for the idea of batching, pre-diluting, and popping them in the freezer—but I can assure you that it will become your favorite go to prep move! A batch Negroni poured from the freezer becomes smooth, decadent, and oh-so-easy to execute!
