The Classic Negroni
Created to be sipped the classic Negroni incorporates equal parts of Gin, Sweet Vermouth and Campari.
Like many cocktails, there are stories about where and when the Negroni was actually created. The most common story is the Negroni was created by Count Camillo Negroni when he requested a bartender create a stronger version of his favourite cocktail, an Americano, by replacing the soda with gin and changing the garnish to orange to complement the ingredients within the cocktail.
Others believe that Pascal Negroni created the cocktail half a century before Count Camillo Negroni’s take on an Americano. Around the 1870s, during high ranking military meetings, Pascal Negroni would create his signature Vermouth based cocktail, which is now believed to be the original Negroni.
