Twenty-five years since Rirkrit Tiravanija doled out free green curry to a voracious crowd at Manhattan’s 303 Gallery, food remains key to the Thai conceptual artist’s practice. He has partnered with gallerist Gavin Brown on a restaurant in upstate New York, chef Dalad Khambu on Berlin eatery Kin Dee, and fellow artist Tobias Rehberger on a food stall at Frankfurt’s Kleinmarkthalle. His twist on a Negroni substitutes Carpano Antica Formula vermouth for Campari. Topped with gin, ‘in sufficient quantity to ensure its dominance over the other ingredients’, Tiravanija’s creation ‘has excellent effects on the imagination. I’ve no idea how or why; I only know that it works.’

1.5 oz. gin
1 oz. Carpano Antica Formula vermouth
1 oz. Cinzano Rosso (sweet vermouth)
1 twist lemon peel
1 twist orange peel
