The Negroni

Negroni cocktail

Purportedly created by Count Negroni—who legend claims invented this drink by asking his bartender to strengthen his Americano by substituting gin for soda water—this easy to make springtime staple has gained newfound popularity in recent years.

  • 1 ounce gin
  • Orange twist, for garnish
