Barrel Aged Negroni Sous Vide Infusion Recipe

Using the sous vide process you can make nice versions of aged cocktails in a lot less time. The cocktail might not take on as much body as aging it for 6 weeks in a barrel but it only takes a few hours and a Mason jar! If you can't find toasted oak chips you can make your own by torching or broiling regular food-safe oak chips until they are lightly charred.

Barrel Aged Negroni Infusion Instructions

For the Barrel Aged Negroni Infusion

Preheat a water bath to 160°F (71.1°C).

Lightly scrub the outside of the orange then remove the zest with a vegetable peeler or zester. Make sure little to no pith came off as well, using a paring knife to remove any.

Lightly rinse the oak chips to remove any sawdust or grit.

Combine the zest with the remaining ingredients in a sous vide bag or Mason jar then seal and place in the water bath. Heat the infusion for 2 to 4 hours.

Prepare an ice bath with 1/2 ice and 1/2 water. Remove the bag or Mason jar from the water bath and place in the ice bath for 15 to 20 minutes. Strain the Negroni and store in a sealed container.
