History of the Negroni
Everything began in Florence, Italy during the 1920s. Count Camillo Negroni strolled into the Casoni Cafe, (presently the Giacosa Cafe) and advised the barman to add gin to his American Highball mixed drink (This sounds like the start of a terrible joke yet it really worked out). The barman switches the soft drink water with gin, the count gets his gin mixed drink and loves it.
The Negroni mixed drink formula acquired fame, and accordingly, another exemplary mixed drink was conceived. In the event that you’re keen on different mixed drinks from the 1920s, look at our 1920s mixed drink post here.
