Try an Americano, the Negroni's Lighter, Bubblier Cousin

This is the Negroni’s lighter, more effervescent cousin, and it works just as well as an aperitif. Add an ounce of Campari and an ounce of sweet vermouth to an ice-filled Collins glass, top with club soda, give it a brief stir, and garnish it with an orange twist. Couldn’t be easier—or more refreshing. And it'll jump-start your appetite, too.

Here’s the recipe, in all its glorious simplicity:

Ingredients |

  • 1 oz Campari
  • 1 oz sweet vermouth
  • Club soda, to top
  • Orange twist for garnish

Method |

  • Add Campari and vermouth to a Collins glass filled with ice.
  • Top with club soda and stir briefly.
