Carefully selected by Sugar & Rind- what’s the story of the Negroni? It’s 1919, Florence, Italy. The flamboyant Count Camillo Negroni sits at his regular seat in the Casoni Bar on Tornabuoni Street. He asks the bartender for more kick in his Americano (a drink comprising Campari, Sweet Vermouth & Soda). The bartender ingeniously swaps the soda with Gin and the rest is history. Albeit until recent years when a descendent of the Negroni family contested there ever being a Count Camillo Negroni in the family Genealogy. Serves 6 generous cocktails.
