The original Negroni of Gin, Sweet Vermouth, and Campari was invented in Florence in 1919 at Cafe’Casoni when Count Camillo Negroni asked the bartender for a stronger version of his favourite drink, The Americano (SweetVermouth, Campari, Soda.) The bartender swapped out the Soda water for Gin, and garnished the drink with orange rather than lemon to signify it was a different drink.

History

There are several variations on the drink, such as the White Negroni, which uses Lillet Blanc and Suze. The trademark of the Negroni is always using equal parts of Gin, vermouth, and bitter. This version uses Chamberyzette, a French vermouth flavoured with wild strawberry juice.
