The origin of the Classic Negroni Cocktail is said to be traced back to Florence, Italy in the early 20th century. According to the story, Count Camillo Negroni requested a bartender to make his favorite cocktail, the Americano, stronger by replacing the soda water with gin.
The bartender obliged and thus, the Negroni was created.
Since then, the Negroni has established itself as a staple in the cocktail world and is widely considered a classic. The recipe of equal parts gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth, stirred and served over ice with an orange peel garnish, has remained unchanged for over a hundred years and its popularity continues to grow.
