Negroni The Classic Italian Cocktail

4 months ago

Negroni has been an all time favourite. It’s a bitter-sweet cocktail made with gin, vermouth rosso and Campari. Served garnished with an orange peel for the perfect Negroni is an aperitif. NOTE: The proper way to make a Negroni is to build it up on ice and have it shaken, not stirred!

Who Invented The Negroni?

The drinks origins are not fully established. The most credible version of its invention comes from Florence, Italy in 1919. The Caffe Cassoni, now called Café Roberto Cavalli is where Count Camillo Negroni, is said to have created the drink when he asked the bartender to make his favourite cocktail the Americano, stronger. Bartender, Fosco Scarselli, did so by substituting gin with the usual soda, and an orange garnish instead of lemon.

The Classic Negroni Recipe



In a tumbler or ‘rocks’ glass pour the gin, Campari and martini rosso over ice. Shake and garnish with orange peel.
