In the world of cocktails, there are classics, and then there are legends. One such legend is the Negroni, a concoction as old as the 20th century itself. Comprising equal parts gin, Campari, and sweet vermouth, it’s a drink that wears its simplicity as a badge of honour. Recently, this timeless classic has experienced a renaissance in popularity, particularly in the United Kingdom. Join us on a journey through the history, artistry, and sheer luxury of the Negroni.
The Negroni’s Rich History
The Negroni’s roots trace back to Italy, where in the early 20th century, Count Camillo Negroni sought to add a little extra kick to his Americano cocktail. The simple substitution of gin for soda water gave birth to a drink that would become a cornerstone of cocktail culture worldwide.
The Negroni Renaissance in the UK
In recent years, the Negroni has seen a resurgence in the UK’s cocktail scene. This revival can be attributed to a shifting palate among cocktail enthusiasts, with a growing appreciation for bitter and bold flavours. Mixologists across the country have embraced the Negroni, introducing their own unique twists and interpretations.
The Art of the Negroni
