Cocktail Of The Day- The Americano

Cocktail Of The Day (because it’s always cocktail hour somewhere in the world). This week’s #COTD is The Americano- a delightful cocktail with similar flavour profile to a Negroni but topped with soda water. According to Saveur, the cocktail was created in the 1860’s and named for American expats who embraced the cocktail during prohibition. Today’s recipe comes courtesy of Saveur Magazine.


1.5 oz Campari
1.5 oz Sweet Vermouth (I used Punt e Mes)
Soda Water
Orange Twist to garnish

Pour Campari and sweet vermouth into a highball glass filled with ice. Top with soda water. Garnish with an orange twist.
