History of the Negroni
Everything began in 1919, when Count Camillo Negroni visited his favourite bar in Florence, Caffé Casoni.
Inspired by a recent trip to Britain, he asked bartender Fosco Scarselli for an Americano made with a splash of Gin instead of soda water. Scarselli then added an orange wedge rather than the usual lemon twist, and the rest is history.
Over the last 100 years, the Negroni has stood the test of time achieving its status as a ‘classic cocktail’.
