This week's Drinks Masterclass showcases a strawberry Negroni from Edinburgh-based cocktail bar, Hey Palu.

Hey Palu, which is number 27​ on the Top 50 Cocktail Bars List​, co-owner Alex Palumbo shares how to make the venues Wild Strawberry Negroni (22% ABV).

Bitter and herbal notes 

Palumbo said: "[This Wild Strawberry Negroni] has all the bitter and herbal notes of the classic Negroni but with a soft strawberry aftertaste.

"Cocktails ​[like this] are a way to offer the guests an alternative flavour profile as opposed to a wine or a beer."

Last year saw the Negroni cocktail capture a lot of consumer attention following a viral video on social media. Read more about the drinks popularity here​.

The bar sells around 40 of these "easy to make" cocktails per week, retailing at £10 per serve.

Palumbo added: "For all Hey Palu​ drinks we tend to have a 'less is more' approach.

"We live in a time where there are a hundred delicious vermouths, amaro, fortified wines, and spirits and we love to showcase how all these liquids work well together."

Let's get into it...
