Close up of a pair of Sushi Rice Negroni cocktails next to a bowl of sushi rice in a moody ktichen setting

We love a new spin on an old classic, and the now-trending Sushi Rice Negroni is everything we adore in a snazzy spin-off. Creators like @Smiley_Bone on TikTok have been trying out this latest trend all over social media, and we have been following along with bated breath. The verdict? It turns out that when sushi rice is stirred into drinks like a Negroni, it closes the gap between flavours and takes the edge off of citrus-forward drinks. It also enhances the flavour of the cocktail and makes it stick, resulting in a taste that lingers. The starch that gets released when you stir the rice with the cocktail ingredients creates a deliciously smooth, velvety mouthfeel. All in all, the Sushi Rice Negroni is a thing of beauty. If you love a good cocktail twist as much as we do, go ahead and stir things up! You won’t be disappointed.

 

QUICK TIPS

01

Don’t wash the sushi rice – you want that starch!

02

Serve in a chilled glass for some extra oomph.

03

Use a few drops of soy sauce instead of salt for a bit of umami flavour.
