In most any bar in America, you can find a bartender to stir and strain his or her version of this popular Italian cocktail into a chilled glass. This Campari-red-colored aperitif was originally created 100 years ago in Florence, Italy for Count Camillo Negroni. We put together a sampling of great hotspots, nationwide, serving this characteristically bitter and typically gin-based cocktail.
From coast to coast, and in between, we have the scoop on where to sip Negronis all across America.
