Negroni

The Negroni is a popular Italian cocktail, made of one part gin, one part vermouth, and one part Campari, garnished with orange peel.

While the drink’s origins are unknown, the most widely reported account is that it was first mixed in Florence, Italy, in 1919, at Caffè Casoni (formerly Caffè Giacosa), on Via de’ Tornabuoni and now called Caffè Roberto Cavalli. Pascal Olivier Count de Negroni concocted it by asking the bartender, Fosco Scarselli, to strengthen his favorite cocktail, the Americano, by adding gin rather than the normal soda water. The bartender also added an orange garnish rather than the typical lemon garnish of the Americano to signify that it was a different drink.
