Ingredients (4)

  • 1 ounce gin
  • 1 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 1 ounce Campari
  • Orange twist, for garnishing


Some contend that this classic cocktail dates back to Florence in the 1920s, when the flamboyant count and noted tippler Camillo Negroni asked for a splash of gin added to his Americano. Others say that the drink, mixed with vodka or gin, has been around as long as the Americano. The Campari company, itself unsure of the origin, eventually decided that the drink should be called a Negroni to avoid confusion with all the other Campari cocktails.


  1. 1Pour the gin, vermouth, and Campari into a chilled Old Fashioned glass over ice.
  2. 2Garnish with the orange twist and serve.
