||This standard hip
cocktail reputedly originated in 1919 when Italian Count Camillo
Negroni asked a bartender to add gin to his Americano instead of soda
1 part Campari
1 part Gin
1 part Sweet or Dry Vermouth
Strain into a chilled glass.
Garnish with an orange slice.
The past, present and
future walk into a bar. It was tense.
Welles, while working
in Rome on the film Cagliostro in 1947, described
a drink he'd disccovered called the Negroni: "The bitters are excellent
for your liver; the gin is bad for you. They balance each other."
