This drink takes it's name from Count Camillo Negroni. Sometime between 1919 and 1921, while drinking at the Casoni Bar (later named Giacosa) on Tornabuoni Street in Florence, Italy, the Florentine Count is said to have asked for an Americano 'with a bit more kick'. He was a regular customer at the bar and bartender, Fosco Scarselli experimented with adding gin to the Count’s favourite aperitif, the Americano. The combination became the Count’s new regular drink and soon other patrons of the bar soon started to ask for “one of Count Negroni’s drinks” and the drink quickly became known as simple ‘Negroni’.
