Florence 1919, maybe 1920. As usual, Count Camillo is at the Caffè Casoni. Yet he is in the mood for something a little stronger than his customary Americano. Inspired by recent trips to London, he asks barman Fosco Scarzelli to replace the soda water with a dash of gin instead. And so the ‘American aperitif Count Negroni-style’ is born. One of the all-time classic aperitivos. And perhaps the ultimate aperitivo full stop.
