Bang for Buck: Bar Americano Cocktails

From the estimable Matthew Bax, founder of Bar Americano and the likes of Der Raum and Singapore’s Tippling Club before it, comes four super-refined, classically-minded cocktails. We’ve been trying to get these gems in-store for a while now, so we’re thrilled they arrived before Christmas. Notes from the bartender:

Americano Cocktail, 200ml
It is a richer, smoother and fruitier take on the classic Campari and vermouth combinations. Dangerously easy drinking. You just need a bottle of soda and a lemon. $30

Brooklyn, 200ml
A Manhattan variation that we think offers more. It is a sipper for sure, but still gentle. It is grown up drinking at its finest. The house raspberry curaƧao offers a fruity zing, Cocchi Americano adds depth, and the Amer Picon softens the bite of the vibrant rye. $34

Negroni, 200 & 500ml
We use a blend of London dry gins and Italian rosso vermouths that have been further infused with local and European herbs, flowers and spices. $34/80

Amaro Americano, 500ml
House blend of 12 Italian amari which are then re-infused with local and European herbs, flowers and spices. Easy drinking like Braulio or Montenegro but with more complexity and longer finish. $68
