Review:

Bittersweet, lightly effervescent, long and refreshing.

History:

Meaning "American-style" in Italian, the name references this cocktail's origins in the 1860s. Italian vermouth producers, picking up on the trend for cocktails in the USA to be based on vermouth and bitters, started marketing vermouths with bitters added under the name "vermouth Americano." Italian bars then started making their own versions by adding various bittersweet style liqueurs, including Fernet Branca, to vermouth. Some also added soda to turn this cocktail into a long drink. Then the popularity of the Milano Torino led to Campari being used in preference to amari in an Americano.

Nutrition:

There are approximately 80 calories in one serving of Americano.
