The perfect cocktail for April


Engagingly bitter, slightly sweet, and above all, tall and cold, the Americano suits the season. Born 1860 in Milan, the Americano was first called the Milano-Torino. Aptly named after the home of each of the famous ingredients, Campari Bitter and Cocchi Torino Vermouth.
