Negroni Cocktail is a bitter-sweet cocktail that’s very common in Italy, there are several types of Negroni Cocktail: Pink Negroni, Negroni Mocktail (Alcohol-free Negroni ), Sherry Negroni etc. We will show you how to make the Classic Negroni Cocktail here.
This drink 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 then-favorite cocktail – the Americano – by replacing the soda water with gin.
The Negroni is a popular Italian cocktail, made of one part gin, one part vermouth Rosso, and one part Campari, garnished with orange peel. It is considered an apéritif (drinks, typically alcoholic that are normally served before a meal). A properly made Negroni is stirred, not shaken, and built over ice in an old fashioned or ‘rocks’ glass and garnished with a slice of orange.
The Negroni cocktail is exactly a hundred and one years now and still hasn’t lost its relevance even in this century. It’s a sweet-bitter taste that seems like a mixture of cherry wine and citrus is incomparable and irreplaceable. It has made its way into the International Bartenders Association (IBA) as one of the very UNFORGETTABLE COCKTAILS.
