Cocktail Negroni’s Story
Count Camillo Negroni, Florentine, eclectic, eccentric world wild traveler, lover of horses and adventure.
Experienced drinker from a long time spent in the United States, where he led the herds in Wyoming finally returned in his town, Florence.
1919 in Florence, the story goes like this:
Herbalist’s shop, Casoni cafè between via Tornabuoni and via Spada.
Count Negroni enters the shop where he was feeling like at home, searching for a new taste of aperitif.
Wishing to change and tone the usual mixture (inspired by his knowledge acquired through years of travelling and tasting drinks) he asks to add a reinforcer, indicating the bottle of Gin to the “bar tender” Fosco Scarselli.
So that’s it!
The result is a cocktail that changes the fashion of the period by adding to the usual way of drinking vermouth, the red color of Bitter Campari and a splash of “brio” of soda.
