The Negroni cocktail is an iconic Italian drink that dates back to 1919. It’s well-known for its unique mix of three different ingredients, specifically gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth. What makes Negroni even more special is the ‘legend’ associated with it – that it was created by a certain Count Negroni who wanted something stronger than his usual Americano (Campari, sweet vermouth, and soda). Negroni has become increasingly popular in recent decades, not only as a classic cocktail but also as an ingredient in different drinks. Its strong flavor is perfect for those who appreciate bold-tasting drinks!
A properly made Negroni is stirred, not shaken, and (classically) built over ice in an old-fashioned or â€˜rocksâ€™ glass and garnished with a slice of orange. Outside of Italy, an orange peel is often used in place of an orange slice. Either is acceptable though an orange slice is more traditional.
