A celebration of the worlds finest cocktail
Bengaluru, India – WEBWIRE – Friday, September 9, 2022
Copitas, the destination bar in Four Seasons Hotel Bengaluru, is gearing up to celebrate one of the worlds most iconic cocktails, the Negroni.
Theres something very captivating about the Negroni. It happens to be both complex as well as simple. Its a fairly easy formula equal parts gin, vermouth and the beating red heart that lends its rich colour to it, Campari. However, what makes it stand apart is how deftly it is mixed and what the varied gin brands bring to its mix, not to mention the deep red colour and a sense of Italian romanticism that this drink has imbued in the minds of cocktail lovers across the world.
The cocktail has a history and dates back to Florence in 1919, when Count Camillo Negroni walked into the Café Casoni looking for something stiffer than the popular Americano, and the bartender went on to slosh some gin into the cocktail. The cocktail became a smashing hit and its fame spread across the world, quickly becoming a darling drink for bartenders to mix.
Copitas at Four Seasons Hotel Bengaluru is one of the participating bars in Asia that is a part of Poured by Four Seasons Negroni Week Edition, a collective format to showcase special menus and the craftsmanship of these Four Seasons bars. The program is slated to run from September 12 to 25, 2022 and will be a part of Negroni Week, which has now become a global fundraising movement.

Bartenders of Copitas, #44 on Asias 50 Best Bars list, have come up with a menu to celebrate the classic, as well as their own riffs. Including simple ingredients such as the fragrant champa flower, available in all Indian flower markets in Bengaluru, and local Araku coffee, they have concocted a cocktail that gives a heady and aromatic spin to the classic and makes for a standout Champa Negroni. Theobrama is a dessert in a glass, in ideation with Executive Pastry Chef Partha Bose, yet holding on to the appeal of the Negroni. The Claypot Negroni adds yet another dimension to the classic, having been aged in a claypot sourced from nearby Pottery Town.
