What is a Negroni?
You can fill entire books about the Negroni cocktail. No wonder, because the drink looks back on a history of more than 100 years. This makes him the great-grandfather of the Italian Aperitivo family. According to the story, an Italian count returned from America in 1919 after having lived his adventures. At a bar counter in Florence, he requested a more mixed "Americano," made up of Campari, vermouth, and a splash of soda water. The barman serving 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 one of the aperitif or pre-dinner drinks. The idea behind this is that you drink something strong before you eat 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 appetizers, but should also help to whet the appetite. Your Negroni tastes just as good at the bar at night as it does as an aperitif!
