A forerunner of the Negroni, the Americano was originally called the Milano-Torino (Campari from Milan. Vermouth from Turin), the Americano was introduced in the 1860’s by Gaspare Campari at his bar. The libation gained popularity with Americans in Italy after the first World War. However, the most famous fan of the Americano was James Bond who ordered the drink early in the first of Fleming’s novels. Some same that is the origin of the name change while others credit the moniker to the drink’s bitter taste.
