Beyond the Drink: Haley Traub’s Il Porto Negroni (S8/Ep.04)

Published on: 26th October, 2022

Haley Traub was the 2018 national champion of Speed Rack, an all-female bartending competition designed to highlight up-and-coming talent in the cocktail industry.  She has been bartending in New York City for a decade and is currently the GM of Lower East Side cocktail institution Attaboy, where she oversaw the team that took home the coveted #1 spot on North America’s 50 Best Bars 2022 list. Haley walks us through her Il Porto Negroni, a bitter and boozy variation based on a traditional negroni. She shares an incredibly touching story of the moment she won the Speed Rack title which to date has raised over 1 million dollars to benefit breast cancer research.
