This famous Italian cocktail was invented just shy of a century ago one night in the historical city of Florence. On that fateful day, Count Camillo Negroni decided his usual Americano (vermouth, campari and seltzer) cocktail was too weak for him, so he demanded that the barman mix him a cocktail with some extra kick. The results were so popular that in no time it became a national and eventually international success.
