Our comment:

A bitter, fizzy, long refreshing drink, which you'll love if you like Campari.

History:

First served in the 1860s in Gaspare Campari's bar in Milan, this was originally known as the 'Milano-Torino' as Campari came from Milano (Milan) and sweet vermouth from Torino (Turin). It was not until Prohibition that the Italians noticed an influx of Americans who enjoyed the drink and so dubbed it Americano.

The history and other recipes for the Negroni cocktail can be found on our Negroni cocktail page.
