Cocktail of the day: The Agroni, a cocktail based on agave Mean Mule Distilling

A tequila version of Negroni is unthinkable… or not. In the middle of the centenary of the classic Italian cocktail, the distillery Mean Mule Distilling creates The Agroni, a version based on their blue agave spirit.


Changing the rules: a negroni based on tequila

Via The Pitch, April Flemming

Mean Mule Distilling presents this version of the Negroni at its East Crossroads bar in Kansas City. Here they propose original creations of artisan cocktails including a flight of spirits for tasting. April Flemming describes the Agroni cocktail as “exceptionally light and drinkable, and a great excuse to venture into this spot“.

The Agroni includes in its recipe agave (tequila not made in Mexico), vermouth Routin for a herbal touch and sweetness and Luxardo Bitter Bianco for the aroma.
