This cocktail adds a hint of pine to a classic White Negroni

Chicago Athletic Association

Watch the city lights of Chicago sparkle from the rooftop bar at the Chicago Athletic Association. Nandini Khaund, the hotel's "spirit guide" (or head bartender), adds a spoonful of evergreen sap harvested in small batches in the Italian Alps to a classic White Negroni recipe.



  • 1.5 Ounces Plymouth Gin
  • .5 Ounce Salers Gentiane
  • .25 Ounce Dolin Dry
  • 1 bar spoon of Mugolio Pine Sap
  • St. George Rhum Agricole
  • Santorini Caper Leaf


Mist a Nick and Nora glass with St. George Rhum Agricole (or rinse with 1/8 oz) then place the caper leaf on the bottom. 

In a mixing glass, combine the Plymouth, Salers, Dolin Dry and the pine sap. Add ice and stir just enough to incorporate and chill the drink without too much dilution- you want to maintain a nice, silky mouthfeel.  Strain atop the caper leaf-lined glass and enjoy.
