How sad the world would be without the Negroni! This is the ideal aperitif perking up the appetite and stimulating the mind to later wine options. Its fruity, citrus tinged, and semi-tart flavors offer the perfect transition from work mode to pleasure.
This classic cocktail comes complete with a classic cocktail story. As the tale goes, Count Camillo Negroni in Florence, Italy invented the cocktail in 1919 at Café Casoni. Count Negroni asked the bartender to alter the Americano (Campari & Sweet Vermouth) by adding Gin.
Regardless if this story is fact or fiction, the cocktail is greatly refreshing and is an ideal aperitif anytime of the year.
Combine all ingredients with ice in a shaker and stir to combine. Strain into a large rocks glass nearly filled with ice. Garnish with an orange peel or orange slices.
