Americano Cocktail Recipe

AMERICANO COCKTAIL Recipe

The Americano cocktail is a classic aperitif cocktail made from Campari and Vermouth Rosso. Orange and lemon are used as garnish. The Americano was allegedly served for the first time in the bar of the Gaspare Campari, the Café Campari, in the 1860s. Originally the cocktail was not called Americano, but Milano-Torino, which refers to the cities of production of the two spirit ingredients.

INGREDIENTS

  • 30 ml/ 1 oz. Campari
  • 30 ml/ 1 oz. Vermouth Rosso
  • A splash of soda water

METHOD

  1. Mix the ingredients directly in an old fashioned glass filled with ice cubes.
  2. Add a splash of soda water.
  3. Stir gently.
  4. Garnish with half orange slice and a lemon zest.

NOTES

A relative is the Negroni cocktail. It differs from the Americano cocktail only in another ingredient, gin.
