Today Italians will be celebrating the Festa della Repubblica.
On this day, back in 1946, Italy held a referendum to determine its form of government (monarchy or republic) to follow the end of World War II and the fall of Fascism. The country voted out the king (who had supported Mussolini during the war) and became a republic, and male members of the royal House of Savoy were sent into exile.
Why not join Italians in their celebrations with a fine and meditative Italian cocktail, the Negroni? It is thought to date back to 1919, when an aristocrat named Count Camillo Negroni wanted an Americano with "a bit more kick".
