The History of the Negroni

As with many of the classic cocktails, there are varying accounts of the origins of this drink. The most widely accepted is that it was invented in Italy at Cafe Cassoni in 1919. Bartender Forsco Scarselli created it after long time customer Count Camillio Negroni asked him to strengthen his favoured tipple the Americano by swapping out the soda with gin. Probably without the best intentions, the Count created one of the worlds greatest ever cocktails.
