Described by the New York Times as a “deliciously complex mix of Campari, gin and sweet vermouth,” the Negroni is a classic cocktail celebrated for its simple construction and refined elegance.
What’s the difference between a Negroni and an Americano? Given its ingredients list, the Negroni is sometimes confused with the slightly less popular Americano, the former’s predecessor which ultimately uses club soda in place of gin to create a more summer-y beverage.
