After spending time gambling in New York and traveling across the American West, Italian Count Camillo Negroni returned home with a hankering for Americanos (a cocktail made with Campari and vermouth). He asked a Florentine bartender to re-create the mix but also to add gin, giving birth to the Negroni.
