THE STORY

Campari Americano

Born in 1915, the Americano is based on the Milano-Torino and shares a similar composition of equal parts bitter and sweet, here with an added splash of soda water and garnished with lemon peel. Legend has it that the name celebrated Primo Carnera, the first Italian to win a heavyweight boxing title in New York. It is also thought to honour the American soldiers and tourists of the time who enjoyed adding soda to their Milano-Torino cocktails for a lighter, more familiar touch.
