One of my favorite cocktails to have prior to a decadent dinner is the classic Negroni.  A delicious aperitif, that combines gin, Campari and sweet vermouth. The origins of the drink traces back to 1919 to Florence, Italy where Count Camillo Negroni, an Italian nobleman, demanded his local bartender, Fosco Scarselli, to strenghthen his favorite libation, The Americano (sweet vermouth, Campari and soda) by adding gin instead of soda.
The gin adds a racy element, while the Campari imparts a bittersweet one and the sweet vermouth serves as the bridge between both of their flavors.

“ Negroni”

1 oz. Gin
1 oz. Campari
