Endless Summer

Yanni Kehagiaras, Liholiho Yacht Club | San Francisco

endless summer cocktail

In his Endless Summer, or a “Negroni on vacation,” as he calls it, Yanni Kehagiaras combines the big three—Campari, gin, sweet vermouth—with an ounce of pineapple and shakes the drink, pours it over ice and, in a testament to his more minimalist approach to tropical drinks, goes garnish-less.

Ingredients

Serving: 1

  • 1 ounce gin, preferably City of London
  • 3/4 ounce Campari
  • 3/4 ounce Dolin Sweet Vermouth
  • 1 ounce pineapple juice

Directions
  1. In a large shaking tin, add all ingredients. Add ice, and shake well.
  2. Fine strain into a Collins glass over ice.
Editor's Note

This drink can easily be scaled up into a large-format cocktail; for guidelines, see here.
