How To Make A Negroni

The Negroni is a world-famous Italian aperitivo created in Florence, Italy in 1919. The cocktail traditionally mixes gin, sweet vermouth, and the iconic Italian red bitter Campari, though the use of other bitters is a source of debate. As the story goes, the drink was invented after Count Camillo Negroni requested an Americano with more kick while imbibing at the city’s Caffe Giacosa. The resulting cocktail, which included gin, was named in honor of the Count. The Negroni is often served before a meal in order to stimulate the appetite, but is versatile enough to be enjoyed at any time.
