Gin Lovers, Tried This Negroni Recipe By Chef Tarun Sibal Yet?

The world is going gaga about Negroni, but if you haven't had a chance to try the same, then fret not. As most of you can tell, it is an Italian cocktail, but not many are aware of the contents of the cocktail that make it so robust and yummy.  

 This cocktail is made with one part gin, one part vermouth rosso (red, semi-sweet), and one part Campari, garnished with orange peel. The classic Negroni is stirred, not shaken. It is built over ice in an old-fashioned or rocks glass, and garnished with a slice of orange. However, there are many renditions of the drink today. In many countries, outside of Italy, they use an orange peel instead of a slice of orange.  

Where Did Negroni Originate?  

The legend has it that the drink was first conceived in Florence, Italy, in 1919, at Caffè Casoni (then called Caffè Giacosa), on Via de’ Tornabuoni. A gentleman by the name Pascal Olivier Count de Negroni asked the bartender Fosco Scarselli to strengthen his favourite cocktail, the Americano, by adding gin instead of soda water and the rest, as they say, is history. Fosco also dropped the typical lemon garnish and went with orange to give it his touch.
