Antica Formula Vermouths, Italy
Take one part gin, one part Antica vermouth, and one part Campari and garnis with orange peel. The Negroni lends itself to tweaks and variations, especially with the vermouth at the heart of the cocktail. More or less ‘amaro’ or bitter, the choice is ours. The drink gets its name from Count Camillo Negroni who asked his bartender, Fosco Scarselli, to strengthen his favourite cocktail, the Americano, by adding gin rather than the normal soda water.
