White negroni

White negroni

Makes 11 x 90ml serves

If you’re out on the sesh with a load of people from Donegal, then for the love of God, don’t try to keep up with them if a bottle of poitín is produced. It will not end well for you. The ‘Forgotten County’ is widely recognised as being the poitín capital of Ireland and their people are well able for it. But thanks to the good folks in Sliabh Liag Distillery in Ardara, Donegal is now known for making some rather delectable whiskey, vodka and gin. Their An Dúlamán Irish Maritime Gin is distilled with wild Donegal seaweeds and works magically in a white negroni.

300ml An Dúlamán Irish Maritime Gin
300ml Lillet Blanc
300ml Suze
100ml water
ice cubes
orange wedges, to garnish

Pour the gin, Lillet, Suze and water into a large jug, then stir for 30 seconds. Pour into a clean 1-litre swing-top bottle. Label it with the name and date and stick it in your fridge door to chill.

For each serve, shake the bottle, then pour 90ml into an iced tumbler and stir with a teaspoon for 10 seconds. Drop in an orange wedge to garnish.

This will keep for six months, unopened, in your fridge. After you open it, you will still get another month out of it.
