As Canadian’s prepare for a family Thanksgiving weekend – many outlets have offered insights into the best Thanksgiving meal. Do not expect that from me. But I will help you get through your “Family Fun” weekend. Enter the Negroni.

Gin has become the new go-to booze of choice amongst the fashion and hipster crowds of London UK, this trend will surely cross the pond soon enough. One of the gin classics that is making a comeback is the Negroni; thought to have been invented in Florence in 1919, when Count Camillo Negroni asked a bartender to boost the strength of his Americano by replacing the soda with gin.

So give thanks and knock a few back.



Mix 1 oz gin with 1 oz sweet vermouth and 1 oz Campari over ice in a rocks glass and stir.

Garnish with an orange slice or peel.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
