Classic Negroni Cocktail Recipe | https://saltandwind.com

There are many Italian cocktail that we insist you sip when you travel to Italy. But, of all of the classic Italian cocktails, one we have the most affinity for is the Negroni. And this cocktail has a pedigree: it just celebrated its 100th birthday, it hails from Florence and has a count to thank for its origing!

The story goes that back in 1919 the Count Negroni (yes, that was his real name!) asked a bartender at the Caffe Casoni in Florence to make an Americano cocktail with gin instead of soda water. To this day, a classic Negroni cocktail is equal parts gin, sweet red vermouth, and Campari served on the rocks and garnished with an orange peel.

This cocktail is all parts alcohol so it's not for the faint of heart, but it doesn’t get more Florentine than sipping on an ice cold Negroni pre-dinner.

So you can give it a try yourself, here's how to make the most classic Campari cocktail of all: the Negroni! 

Ingredients

  • ice cubes
  • 1 ounce Campari
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 1 ounce London Dry Gin
  • orange twist

Instructions

To Mix A Negroni Cocktail: Place ice in a cocktail mixing glass then add all the liquor. Stir with a bar spoon until the mixing glass is chilled. Strain mixture into a rocks glass filled with ice, top with an orange twist, or a slice of orange, and serve.
