History

The most widely accepted version of how the Negroni was invented can be traced back to Florence in 1919. It is said that Count Camillo Negroni came back to Italy from America after spending time on a cattle ranch.

He had a new found like of hard liquor and asked the bartender at Caffè Casoni, reported to be Fosco Scarselli, to replace the soda in his Americano with gin. There are of course some conflicting accounts, as with any history of a cocktail. Family of General Pascal Olivier de Negroni, Count de Negroni claim that he was the Count Negroni who invented the drink in 1857 in Senegal.
