Americano Cocktail PRINT
- PREP TIME: 5 min
- COOK TIME: 0 min
This classic cocktail may be the pre-cursor to another old standard, the Negroni. It became popular through a loophole in the Prohibition laws because it was possible to legally acquire it during that time with a“prescription”from your“doctor”.
|2||oz sweet vermouth|
|3||oz club soda|
|1||lemon or orange twist as garnish|
Stir the Campari and vermouth together in a mixing glass half filled with ice cubes. Strain into an ice filled old-fashioned glass. Top with club soda. Twist the lemon or orange slice over the drink, and drop it in. Serve with a swizzle stick.
