What is a Negroni?
You can fill entire books about the Negroni cocktail. No wonder, because the drink has a history that goes back over 100 years. This makes him considered the great-grandfather of the Italian Aperitivo family. As the story goes, an Italian count returned from America in 1919 after his adventures. At a bar in Florence, he requested a more heavily blended “Americano,” which consisted of Campari, vermouth and a splash of soda water. The barman who served him, Fosco Bruno Sabatino Scarselli, grabbed a bottle of gin instead of water, et voilá: the Negroni was born!

When do you drink a Negroni?
The Negroni is an aperitif or pre-dinner drink. The idea is that you drink something strong before eating to stimulate your appetite. This idea of the pre-dinner drink comes from America. However, the Negroni comes from Italy and is therefore defined by its bitter notes. These not only harmonize perfectly with salty starters, but are also said to whet your appetite. Your Negroni tastes just as good at the bar at night as it does as an aperitif!
What is a Finger Stirred Negroni?
Bartenders are often asked whether you stir a Negroni with your finger. Even if it sounds unsavory, there is a good reason for it: bartending legend Garry “Gaz” Regan! He once had to mix 20 Negronis in a few minutes and in the rush he simply used his finger to stir. This has been his signature move ever since! If you want to feel like the bartender legend himself, we recommend giving it a try - just maybe not when you're making drinks for your friends.
