An iconic Aperitif, the refreshing Americano Cocktail is a “sip” as old as time. It consists of Campari, Sweet Vermouth, and a splash of Club soda flaunting a simple recipe with a fascinating flavor.

The Americano cocktail makes an appearance in the earliest James Bond novel, being the first drink the agent orders. More rejuvenating than the NEGRONI with the addition of club soda rather than gin, the iconic Americano cocktail is less intimidating and perfect to savor on a summer evening. Campari exhibits a unique flavor that you shouldn’t knock until you try!
