Negroni

Rocks, Stirred Bitter, Savory, Spirit-Forward

Reportedly created in 1919 by bartender Fosco Scarselli at Caffe Casoni in Florence, Italy for Count Camillo Negroni when he requested his regular drink, the Americano, be strengthened by replacing the soda water with gin.

This delicious drink is so simple to make that it can be ordered with con dence in all but the most basic of bars. The combination of gin, sweet vermouth and Campari can be a challenge to the uninitiated but once converted few ever turn away from this most assured blend of flavours.

Author Sir Kingsley Amis once wrote about the Negroni that “This is really a fine invention. It has the power, rare with drinks and indeed with anything else, of cheering you up.”
