9. Negroni

Origin: The invention of the Negroni is most commonly attributed to a rich Florentine Count Camillo Negroni, who in 1919 is said to have asked his bartender, Fosco Scarselli, to add gin, rather than soda water, to his Americano cocktail.

Scarselli was working at Caffè Casoni, now the Cavalli Caffè in Florence, at the time. Following its success, the Negroni Family founded Negroni Distillerie in Treviso producing a ready-made version of the drink, which was sold as Antico Negroni.

Ingredients: Gin, red vermouth, Campari

Method: Pour equal parts (25ml) gin, red vermouth and Campari over ice into a tumbler. Add a slice of orange to garnish if desired.
