Bartender Stories

Mike Henderson

Invented by Count Camillo Negroni, this classic cocktail was born when the Count asked bartender Fosco Scarselli to strengthen his favorite cocktail, the Americano, with gin. Now a favorite among bartenders and cocktail aficionados alike, the Negroni is everything a good cocktail should be: simple, balanced and full-flavored. Bitter in flavor, the Negroni is definitely an acquired taste but for those who love the bitter bite of Campari, there is no better Camapri cocktail.
