Classic Summer Cocktail of the Week: Americano

Bright red and bittersweet, the Americano was born as the "Milano-Torino" at Caffè Camparino in the 1860's. It's still the perfect summer drink today.

Americano

Bright red and bittersweet, the Americano was born as the "Milano-Torino" at Caffè 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. 


What's In It:

1.5 oz Campari
1.5 oz sweet vermouth
Soda water to top
Orange for garnish

How to Make it:

Fill a highball glass with ice. Add Campari and vermouth, and top generously with soda, taking care not to exceed a 1:1:2 ratio. Garnish with an orange slice or twist.
