Negroni has been a favourite drink for a lot of people around the world. In fact, a survey conducted by Drinks International unveiled that it is the second bestselling cocktail in the world during the past five years! This deep red drink usually offered as an apéritif. Just in case you didn’t know, apéritif refers to an alcoholic beverage served before a meal to stimulate the appetite. An expert chef from a pizza restaurant Chiswick explains more about the drink.

A Brief History of Negroni:

The exact origin of this drink is not really known, however there’s speculations that it is connected to both Italian and French cultures. Regardless, the cocktail is said to have first mixed in Florence in 1919 at Caffè Casoni. Legend has it that Count Camillo Regroni requested a bartender to strengthen his drink, the Americano. And that’s how Negroni was born. The drink soon became popular, after which readymade versions were sold to customers.

5 Facts About Negroni:

-It’s a simple cocktail with essentially three ingredients – sweet vermouth, gin, and Campari. It is also one of the easiest cocktails to make.

-Over a thousand variations of negroni were introduced over the years. People love experimenting and creating exciting variants of the drink. Some of the popular ones include the Boulevardier and the Negroni Bianco.

-A standard Negroni will have equal parts of the ingredients. However, a tad extra gin can sweeten the drink and brighten the cocktail further.

-Even if the choice of vermouth and gin varies from bar to bar, Campari remains the standard ingredient for the cocktail to be perfect.

-Every year, an entire week will be dedicated for the drink, and is popularly called the Negroni Week. Thousands of restaurants and bars around the world participate to raise funds for charitable organisations. In 2021, Negroni Week will be celebrated from September 13 to September 19.
