The Americano is a low alcohol cocktail that combines sweet vermouth with Campari, an Italian orange aperitif. Created in 1860 in Italy. The drink later became popular amongst American tourists in Italy and therefore adopted the name Americano.
I'm a Baltimore gal that loves her home town almost as much as a good drink. A bit of a cocktail geek that loves the classics while experimenting with my own recipes. I'm home schooled and eager to learn more about the spirited world of cocktails.
