Jungle juice

There are times when water just doesn’t cut it. And luckily, for those times, there is Jungle Juice.

Negroni Week (24–30 June) is a week-long celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charities around the world.

This bitter, sweet drink is all about flavour. It’s a personal favourite of mine. Its sweetness hides the alcoholic content that comes from three separate spirits mixed to perfection (gin, campari and sweet vermouth). It’s a simple drink but, as Millsy from the Bolt Hole says, ‘measure the ratios incorrectly, fail to mix well, or, even worse, don’t use all of the amazing orange zest oil from the twist and you’ll make Hemingway spin in his grave.’

The Bolt Hole and Brookie’s Gin have teamed up to curate an exclusive Negroni menu and will be donating $2 for every Negroni sold to One More Wave – a charity that provides wounded or disabled veterans access to surfing by providing them with customised surfing equipment and assistance. Drink for a cause this June @theboltholebyronbay @brookiesgin @1mwave.
