·1 min read

Traditionally featuring gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth, a negroni is a classic Italian cocktail that packs a flavorful punch. On this episode of In The Know: Bar Master, mixologist and cocktail expert, Josué Gonzaléz (@josue.allday) takes the basic negroni on a trip to paradise, with his signature Negroni Tropical. Featuring flavors like pineapple and coconut, the Negroni Tropical is the perfect way to get a sip of sunshine all-year-round!


  • .75 oz Plantation Pineapple Rum

  • .25 oz Smith & Cross Jamaican Rum

  • .75 oz toasted coconut Campari (Josué makes this by infusing Campari with toasted coconut flakes overnight)

  • .75 oz Punt e Mes Vermouth

  • Lemon peel (for garnish)

  • Pineapple frond (for garnish)

  • Edible flower (for garnish)


  1. Combine the pineapple rum, Jamaican rum, Campari, and vermouth in a mixing glass.

  2. Fill the mixing glass up with ice, then stir well using a bar spoon.

  3. Strain the cocktail into a double rocks glass with 2 ice cubes.

  4. Rub a lemon peel together over the cocktail, getting the aromatic oils inside the glass.

  5. Garnish with pineapple fronds and a flower. Cheers!
