Rakoni cocktail: the turkish cousin, made with raki, of the Negroni

We have been working on Negroni lately, experiencing countless variations, but at the end of the day the two variants that we have chosen to publish are White Negroni and our new cocktail: Rakoni, a Negroni made with raki, the aniseed-flavored spirit of Turkish/Greek/Balkan origin.

Rakoni is an unusual cocktail, but very aromatic, that starting from the classic combo of sweet vermouth and bitter, can develop its own identity with style.

It’s hard to try, drink and invent new Negroni variants when the original drink is a masterpiece, a piece of history, a cornerstone of the mixed drinks, but this distillate with a quiet charm is not so bad.

The Rakoni recipe is identical to the original Negroni, same doses: you just need to replace gin with raki and to get a new, shiny cocktail.

Rakoni cocktail ingredients

  • 1/3 (3 cl) of raki
  • 1/3 (3 cl) of bitter
  • 1/3 (3 cl) of sweet vermouth
  • lemon peel
  • slice of orange
