The negroni is one of the most popular gin cocktails out there, and has been popular for decades. Little is known about the origins of this strong cocktail, but the widely prevailing rumour is that it came about when a Count Negroni asked his bartender to strengthen his americano cocktail by replacing the soda with gin.
True or not, there’s no denying that the humble negroni fast became a legend! It’s official recipe is 3 parts gin, 3 parts sweet red vermouth, and 3 parts Campari, but it’s been remixed countless ways since then!
