This cocktail was created by the Count Negroni at the beginning of the 20st Century when he asked to add gin to replace the soda in his Americano. Simple to make (equal parts of gin, Campari and vermouth rosso) and balanced, it's considered to be one of the most famous Italian cocktails in the world.
Experiment this cocktail with different brands of gin and/or vermouth to create a drier, sweeter or spicier version. Find the combinations that you enjoy the most. The structure is the same, but the cocktail is embellished by the individual who makes it!
There is famous other variations of this Classic cocktail Negroni, such as:
Negroni Sbagliato (replace the gin with sparkling wine like champagne or Prosecco)
Aperol Negroni (swaps Campari for Aperol)
White Negroni (Gin-Lillet blanc-Suze liqueur)
Americano (Campari-sweet vermouth-club soda)
Boulevardier (replace gin with whiskey)
