mixing tips


  • Start with the cheapest ingredients (the syrup) first.
  • Try to use cold liquids to mix the drink. It will give you more control over the dilution.

Mise En Place

  • Keep all equipment and ingredients within range. It will be easier and faster to mix the drink.


  • If you use a large ice ball, after removing it from the freezer, let it stay for some minutes. Otherwise, it might crack once you pour the liquid over the ice ball.

editor recipe notes

The Coffee Kiss Negroni is an effortless Negroni style with a slight touch of coffee spirit. We like the Brands from DSM, the Deutsche Spirituosen Manufaktur. Because of the intense scent and flavor of the coffee spirit, we are just using 10ml in the entire drink. You could use coffee liqueur for flavor, but you always have some sugar in the liqueur. We wanted it dry and still flavourful. That’s why a spirit is there a better choice. We like to put espresso beans as a garnish inside. Otherwise, if you use a citrus zest, the scent might overload the drink’s aromas.
