Negroni

Don Camillo and His Monkey

© Jochen Hirschfeld

In the true style of la dolce vita, the classic Negroni cocktail is served as an apéritif and gets its name from the Italian bon vivant and Count Camillo Negroni. The origins of the drink trace back to around 1920 when Conte Negroni asked his bartender Fosco Scarselli in his usual hangout, Caffè Casoni in Florence, to add gin to his favourite cocktail, the Americano. And so the Negroni was born. While more and more variations of the Negroni have emerged over the years, the traditional version of this classic gin cocktail is currently enjoying a renaissance around the world. But with a small, hairy exception from the Black Forest. According to the classic recipe, stir all ingredients in an old-fashioned glass with ice and garnish with an orange zest twist. Salute!
