It’s Time to Revisit a Timeless Apéritif

by | Apr 2021

Negroni, an italian cocktail, is an apéritif first mixed in Florence in 1919. Count Camillo Negroni asked to strengthen his Americano by adding gin rather than normal soda water.


The negroni is a classic cocktail that is easy to prepare, with relatively few ingredients. It’s a classic apéritif! 


  • 1 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. campari
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • Orange twist, for garnish

Mix ingredients, and pour into an old fashioned cocktail glass. Add twist for garnish. Note: Replicate this recipe, minus the gin and add in soda water to taste, and you’ve got another classic—the Americano.
