History:

The most widely reported version of the Negronis origin is that it was invented in Florence, Italy in 1919, at Caffè Casoni, now called Caffè Giacosa. Count Camillo Negroni invented it by asking the bartender, Fosco Scarselli, to strengthen his favorite Cocktail, the Americano, by adding Gin rather than the normal Soda Water. The bartender also added an Orange garnish rather than the typical Lemon garnish of the Americano to signify that it was a different drink.
