Based on a white Negroni, this cocktail recipe from Con Alma is named after jazz trumpeter Erik Truffaz’s song of the same name. Featuring Thai basil & Jalapeno infused Jin JiJi as its main ingredient, Con Alma Mixologist Hannah McKee, says of Magrouni, “It has a very cool Indian sound to it, and since this riff features an Indian dry gin, it seemed like a good fit.”
Traditionally speaking, the Negroni is made with equal parts Campari, gin, and sweet red vermouth and always garnished with an orange wheel.
