This is no candy colored drink to mess with. Most people when they see the infamous Negroni think of a sweet child’s drink but this is far from the truth. This Italian drink is favorite amongst the hairy chested culture. No but in all seriousness this drink is much more complex and amazed then most think.
Composed by three ingredients perfectly poured together 

Campari
An alcoholic liqueur, considered an apéritif, obtained from the infusion of herbs and fruit in alcohol and water. It is a bitter characterised by its dark red colour. Think bitter orange peels but delicious. 

Sweet Vermouth (Sweet oh god Sweet not Dry)
Vermouth is an aromatized, fortified wine flavored with various botanicals. The modern versions of the beverage were first produced in the mid- to late 18th century in Turin, Italy.

Gin
Gin is a spirit which derives its predominant flavour from juniper berries. From its earliest origins in the Middle Ages, gin has evolved from a herbal medicine to an object of commerce in the spirits industry.

Perfectly balanced with 1oz each to create an amazing experience loved by all. Even candy loving individuals come on its Halloween soon we cant leave them out. 

Perfectly garnished with an orange peel or flamed orange zest.

The Header6 THINGS YOU NEED FOR EVERY SHIFT
  So your about to head off to work and you want to be prepared way beyond believe well BartenderOne and CSB got you covered. Here are the 6 things you need to bring to every shift for smooth sailing and of course amazing tips. 

Cocktail Shaker/Tin 
¬† Now we have all watched James Bond that’s for sure. And if not there’s your bartending homework right there. The infamous Shaken not stirred can only be done with one object and that’s the cocktail shaker or tin as most people refer to it as. This¬†usually¬†28oz¬†cocktail¬†shaker is a bartenders best friend it allows you to smash, shake and mix any drink known to man. Its also is an essential tool in flair for nesting which is when you catch the bottle in the tin. Now you might think how could this one tin do so much well then I would reply with why you thinking so much about a tin and just bring it to the bar. Trust me you need it.

Bar Spoon
¬† Now, what happens when James Bond doesn’t come by the bar and we need to actually stir a cocktail well you sure as hell aren’t putting your finger in there and going to town. There’s a lovely tool called the bar spoon which allows you to do said task. This allows for the fanatic martini expert to be pleased with your stirring skills, as well this amazing tool works great for layering shots and drinks allowing for a whole new level of engagement for the guest. So don’t forget and grab that spoon next time before you go to the bar.¬†

Jigger
¬† So you go to your brand new bar and your so excited because you know how to free pour and you’re ready to go but your bar manager just randomly decided that oh we need to clean the spouts and takes them all. Now what do you do free pour without spouts, no silly grab that jigger and get jigging. Jiggers are an amazing tool for measurement and allow for you to be accurate every single time but more importantly they allow you to be ready to bartend even if there are no spouts. And lets be honest what’s not more classy then a bartender and there jigger.

Hawthorne Strainer 
¬† Now I don’t know about you but not everyone likes getting huge chunks of ice and food tossed in there face when drinking there cocktail, if you do good on you. But for the most of the world, we need to strain that shizzle. And how do we do that well with our Hawthorne Strainer of course! Hawthorne strainers are perfect for a tough bar night because they just make your job that much easier and when you have your own you don’t have to worry about where its been or if its clean so why not just grab yours and go.

Speed blade
¬† Now the bars packed you have over 100 people ready for drinks and one beautiful lady comes by and asks for 20 beers for table 7 and you think to your self thank god. You go to the beer and realize you don’t have a speed blade. What you gonna do pop all those bottle tops off with your tin now that’s going to take along time, isn’t it. Wish you had a speed blade bottle opener well next time make sure to bring one with you so that 20 beers becomes a 20-second affair instead of an hour. As well come on its called a speed blade how much cooler can you get.

Corkscrew
¬† Now I don’t know about you but I like tips, they make me money and they make me happy. You wanna know what has a great tip to drink ratio that’s wine. But if your the dummy that forgets to bring there corkscrew to work you won’t be the one getting those tips that’s for sure. Corkscrews allow you to do two things deal with wine efficiently and effectively. Plus you can rack those wine tips up fast.

Now if you don’t have these tools don’t sweat it BartenderOne has got you set all you got to do is call us and come pick your stuff up as simple as that.
