Gaspare Campari’s tavern in Milan, Italy, began serving the Americano drink to customers in the 1860s. This is a straightforward variation on the classic Milano-Torino, which is made with Campari and sweet vermouth but no water. It’s made with equal parts Campari and sweet vermouth, then topped off with sparkling water. According to legend, the name derives from the area’s popularity among American tourists. Give it a shot and then let me know what you think.
