Now if this blog started some time last year and not two weeks ago, I would without a doubt be at “Tales Of The Cocktail” in New Orleans right now. For those of you unfamiliar with the event “Tales Of The Cocktail” is a five day long event that strives “to be instrumental in advancing the craft of the cocktail through education, networking and promotion.” And this is done through various seminars, competitions, tastings, etc.
One of the events that took place at “Tales Of The Cocktail” was Campari’s “World’s Largest Negroni” event. The event featured a ginormous 30-gallon Negroni cocktail which was served to attendee’s by a bevy of gentlemen sporting handlebar moustaches. I sure hope the folks at Guinness were contacted because this is without a doubt the biggest cocktail I’ve ever seen. Check out pics from the event as well as a recipe for the Negroni cocktail below.
