Mixing with Angostura the Iconic Cocktail Negroni

Join us on a journey through flavor and time as we celebrate an iconic cocktail – the Negroni!

The Negroni is a cocktail that has surpassed trends and time for over a century, dating all the way back to the early 20th century Florence. It was born at the hands of Count Camillo Negroni when, in a bold statement, he added gin to his regular americano instead of the usual soda water. It didn’t take long for the innovative drink to spread, not only over the country, but globally, as it was taken to America in the 1920s. Throughout the decades, the Negroni has evolved and adapted to the ever-changing taste preferences and mixology trends.
The most intriguing twist in this legendary drink’s history, however, is the introduction of ANGOSTURA® orange bitters. The simple addition of that citrusy note immediately elevates its complexity and overall allure as a cocktail. This goes to show that the Negroni is more than just a drink – it’s a testament to the artistry of crafting flavors that transcend time. Now, if you’re looking for the perfect gin to make your ordinary negroni extraordinary, try out a bottle of Cape Town Gin, you can’t go wrong.

Mixing the Negroni with Angostura Bitters


  • Ingredients:
  • 30ml gin
  • 30ml sweet vermouth
  • 30ml Campari
  • 2 dashes ANGOSTURA® Orange bitters
  • Orange twist

Stir all ingredients well in an ice-filled mixing glass and strain into an ice-filled old-fashioned glass. Add orange twist for garnish.

The proud history of the House of ANGOSTURA® began almost two hundred years ago in 1824, when founder Dr. Johann Siegert first produced aromatic bitters in the city of Angostura in Venezuela.
