Americano Cocktail

By admin | February 14, 2017

Pin It
Bright red and bittersweet, the Americano was born as the “Milano-Torino” at Caffe Camparino in the 1860’s (the Campari came from Milan, the sweet vermouth from Turin). The cocktail eventually became known as the “Americano” due to its popularity with American expats during prohibition.
Ingredients:
1 oz Campari
1 oz Red Vermouth
Soda water
Orange Slice

Directions:
Pour the Campari and vermouth over ice into low Old Fashioned glass, add a splash of soda water and garnish with half orange slice.
