The most widely reported version of Negroni’s origin is that it was invented at Caffe Casoni in Florence, Italy in 1919. Legend tells that Count Camillo Negroni asked his friend, bartender Forsco Scarselli, to strengthen his favourite cocktail – the Americano – by replacing the soda water with gin. Scarselli added an orange garnish, rather than the lemon you’d usually get with an Americano, and the drink took off. Before long, everyone was coming into the bar for a ‘Negroni’.
Serving Suggestion: This ready to drink Classic Negroni Cocktail from Casoni is a well balanced blend of Gin, Bitter Casoni and Sweet Vermouth. Pour over ice and add a slice of orange.
