Backstory: While the drink’s origins are still a myth, the most-repeated story is that, in Florence, Italy, in 1919, at Caffè Casoni Count Camillo Negroni once asked a bartender in Café Casoni to strengthen his favorite Americano (Campari, sweet vermouth, and club soda) by adding gin instead of the normal soda water. The bartender also added an orange garnish rather than the typical lemon. Thanks to Negroni’s equal parts sweet, bitter, and boozy, and played an essential role in our modern cocktail revival.
