A brief history of the Negroni Cocktail...

The Negroni is a classic Italian aperitif comprised of one part gin, one part sweet vermouth, and one part Campari. The bitterness of Campari mixes perfectly with sweet vermouth to create the perfect aromatic blend.

According to legend, the famed Negroni cocktail was invented in Italy, by Count Camillo Negroni. Supposedly, the Count entered a bar in Florence, and requested the bartender to strengthen his favourite drink, the Americano, by replacing soda water with gin, and serving it short rather than in a tall glass. This new, more potent cocktail caught on, and the Negroni Cocktail became a firm favourite in Florence and beyond!

An alternative theory of how the Negroni was born is linked to General Pascal Olivier de Negroni, who served in the Franco-Prussian war in the late 1800’s. The general and his wife developed a love for Vermouth based cocktails, and inspired a generation of army officers to jump on board the Negroni cocktail bandwagon.

Whilst the origins of the Negroni remain unclear, it is certain that this cocktail has become one of the most loved drinks around the world for hundreds of years.

The traditional Italian Negroni is stirred, not shaken - with the ingredients being added to a lowball glass over ice, and garnished with a slice of orange. Outside of Italy, the orange slice os often replaced with orange peel, providing a zesty aroma that enriches the flavour.

Since the Negroni has been around for so long, many variants of this cocktail have been created by bartenders who have added their own personal spin on the classic Negroni cocktail recipe. The Boulevardier switches gin for whiskey, the Negroni fizz incorporates Prosecco, and the Americano replaces gin with soda for a much softer, lighter drink.

No matter the season, the Negroni cocktail hits the mark. This versatile all-year-round drink is light enough for summer days, but strong enough to warm the body on a cold winters night.
