The Negroni has a history that goes way back, all the way back to the 1920's. As the story goes, a man named Count Camillo Negroni orders an Americano (sweet vermouth, campari and club soda) at a bar in Florence, Italy, but asks for gin instead of soda.
The drink has made a resurgence as of late, and it's easy to tell way. This classic cocktail is sophisticated and delicious. and extremely easy to make. Once you get the basics down, try some variations like swapping the gin for tequila, or using cherry gin and garnishing with grapefruit - the variation we're serving at Spencer's this fall.
