Poor Toms Negroni

Poor Toms Negroni

The most widely reported version of this drink's origin is that it was invented at Caffe Casoni in Florence, Italy in 1919. Legend tells that Count Camillo Negroni asked his friend, bartender Forsco Scarselli, to strengthen his favourite cocktail – the Americano – by replacing the soda water with gin.

Imbroglio, a bitter/sweet Amaro Australiano fits right at home in a Negroni. This sticky situation involves a cornucopia of 25 obscure herbs and outrageous fruits both stepped and distilled, native and internazionale. The ensuing calamity is a fresh, herbaceous frenzy that'll make you forget whether you are coming or going.
