Negroni Gin Campari Bitter Italian Amaro Sweet Vermouth Iced Cocktail

The Negroni, a classic Italian aperitivo, made with gin, sweet vermouth, and Campari. The earliest reports of the drink are from Orson Wells in 1947 while he was working in Rome. He described the new cocktail saying “The bitters are excellent for your liver, and the gin is bad for you. They balance each other.” Other sources say Count Negroni created the drink in 1857 in Senegal.
