This cocktail, similar to the Negroni, is an evolution of a popular cocktail in Italy during the 1800 called Milano-Torino, which was a mixture of sweet vermouth (typical product of Torino) and Campari (the famous bitter created in Milano). In 1860, Mr. Gasparre Campari’s bar started to serve a version that would include a part of soda in it. They noticed that this specific version was very appreciated by the Americans during the Prohibition period, giving it the name “Americano”. It’s a perfect Aperitivo, bold and bitter, yet fizzy and refreshing. It’s a lower ABV version of the Negroni.
