While at San Clemente Palace Kempinski, don’t miss the chance to taste our signature cocktail – the Negroni SCPK – the Venetian version of the most iconic Italian mixed drink. The Negroni SCPK celebrates Venice historical importance as a cultural crossroad between Europe and Asia.
The Negroni SCPK has its roots in India, as the Executive Chef Vincenzo Di Tuoro tells:
“A Negroni has always been my favorite pre-dinner cocktail. When I moved to India a few years ago, I couldn't find any bar serving it. One day, I told my kitchen crew about this famous Italian aperitivo and they were very curious to try it. Unfortunately there was no Campari available, but the day before we had prepared a pre-dessert with Aperol-grapefruit granita. So we filled a Martini glass with the granita and then poured vermouth and gin over it, and for the sweet finish, I added candied orange crumble to the rim. Perfect!”
Our Negroni SCPK consists of Carpano Antica Formula Vermouth and Bombay Sapphire Gin infused with juniper berries, poured into a Martini glass of Aperol-grapefruit granita, rimmed with candied orange crumble.
