We were super excited and entralled when we were invited to take a peek at the latest collaboration between INTERCONTINENTAL HOTELS & RESORTS and CAMPARI, on their latest endeavor to juxtapose a series of Sala Spiritello pop up experiences by Campari and the introduction of the new InterContinental Negroni.
This authentic Milanese aperitivo is best expressed through the Sala Spiritello, that is hidden within the Camparino, where the art of mixology meets the aromas and flavour of the food mastery -> we like that!
Created by Symphony Loo, Campari’s regional brand ambassador, the InterContinental Negroni is an only exclusive to InterContinental Hotels & Resorts and his inspiration is drawn from the “go-to gifts like locally-sourced coffee beans, tea and chocolate, with the taste profiling interspersed by inspirations of floral notes, coffee, hint of saltiness and citrus”.
We sampled the signatory InterContinental Negroni – Sala Spiritello edition which consist of Campari, Cinzano Bianco, Cinzano Rosso, Bulldog Gin, Olive Brine, Jasmine Tea, Coffee Orange and Chocolate Bitters -> the umami mix and middle palate lingers as the range of different flavors are omnipresent in this cocktail.
The Campari Seltz was a great starter with both Campari and Soda. We loved the Piña Shakerato which is so refreshing oozing with Campari, Fresh Pineapple Juice, Coconut Oil and the Aero 2.0 was simply marvelous with a spread of Aperol, Averna, Wild Turkey Bourbon 101.
The Potato Mushroom Quiche and Chocolate Bomboloni complemented the Campari tasting, whilst the Italian Parma Ham & Melon was the perfect accompaniment to the InterContinental Negroni due to the complex but delicious structuring in these innovative curations. So Yummy!
