Information

The cocktail was first served in creator Gaspare Campari's bar, Caffé Campari, in the 1860s. It was originally known as the Milano-Torino because of its ingredients: Campari, the bitter liqueur, is from Milan (Milano) and Punt e Mes, the vermouth, is from Turin (Torino). It is popular belief that in the early 1900s, the Italians noticed a surge of Americans who enjoyed the cocktail. As a compliment to the Americans, the cocktail later became known as the Americano.
