A BRIEF, INEBRIATED HISTORY OF THE NEGRONI
According to reliable lore, our favourite cocktail was born in Florence, Italy, in 1919. As the story goes, Count Camillo Negroni asked his friend, bartender Fosco Scarselli, for a stiffer riff on an Americano cocktail (a much-tamer mix of Campari, sweet vermouth, and club soda). It seems the Count had picked up a taste for strong liquor while working— true story—as a rodeo clown in America.
Since then, the popularity of the cocktail expended from Italy to the whole word, making it a real classic. Among its aficionados, we counted legendary actor, director and writer, Orson Welles.
