How To Make A Negroni

The Negroni cocktail is over one hundred years old, and the Negroni recipe is straightforward to make. The Negroni drink has long been a barman and drinker's favorite around the world, with numerous variations or ‘riffs’ that have been created over the years. Three main Negroni ingredients that are needed to make a Negroni are Campari, Gin, and Vermouth. Below we shall show you how to make a Negroni in more detail, but in summary, the Negroni cocktails ingredients are all poured in equal measure for the classic Negroni recipe.  


The inventor of the Negroni was named Count Negroni, and the Negroni came to be created when the Count requested that his Americano cocktail be made a little stronger. The story goes that the barman serving Count Negroni decided to swap in Gin in place of the soda water of the Americano cocktail that the Count had requested.


The Classic Negroni Recipe

The Classic Negroni is the one that started it all. When Count Negroni asked the barman in Florence, Italy, to swap out soda water and instead use Gin, he created a genuinely timeless cocktail. Campari is the most consistent ingredient in a Negroni, and it is usually the Gin or the Vermouth that is swapped around with other base ingredients. If you want to stick with the classic Negroni, then try different Gin and Vermouth types and see how the flavor changes.
