Drink Recipe:: Negroni

by Negronis Greg

The Negroni is said to have been invented in Florence, Italy in 1919 by a man named Count Camillo Negroni. The story goes that he asked the bartender to make his Americano cocktail (Campari, sweet vermouth, and soda water) stronger by replacing the soda water with gin. And voila, the Negroni was born!


  • 1 oz gin
  • 1 oz Campari
  • 1 oz sweet vermouth
  • Orange twist or slice for garnish


  1. Fill a mixing glass with ice.
  2. Add gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth.
  3. Stir until well chilled.
  4. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice.
  5. Garnish with an orange twist or slice.

Who makes the best Negroni today? This is a tough one, as it really depends on personal preference. However, some bars and bartenders are definitely known for crafting amazing Negronis. One such bar is Dante in New York City, where they have a whole menu dedicated to the Negroni. Another is Bar Termini in London, where they serve a classic Negroni with a delicious twist - a dusting of dark chocolate over the orange twist.

Personal opinions and pairing recommendations: I absolutely love the bitter and sweet flavors of the Negroni, and think it pairs well with savory snacks like olives and cured meats. If you're looking for a meal to pair it with, I suggest something with bold flavors like grilled steak or roasted vegetables.

One thing to note is that the Negroni is a strong drink - not for the faint of heart! So sip it slowly and savor every drop.

In conclusion, the Negroni is a classic cocktail with a rich history and bold flavors. It's definitely worth trying at least once, and who knows, it might just become your new favorite!
