Negroni Week – The Americano

First created in the 1860’s by Gaspare Campari, this cocktail was originally called the ‘Milano-Torino’. During the prohibition era is when it got it’s current name as the expat Americans loved it! Made up of the classic combination of Campari and Sweet Vermouth, unlike the Negroni it has soda water rather than the gin. Bitter and fizzy the Americano is a long refreshing drink and is perfect for any Campari lover. Stir, don’t shake and serve over ice for the perfect Gatsby-inspired cocktail.
