Step By Step  

This drink didn't originate in the USA. The ingredients in this glass are Italian, all the way.

As prepared by NY Barfly,

The Americano was popular in Italy's cafes during the mid 1800s, where you'll find it being sipped to this day. 

The blend of Campari and vermouth is meant for drinkers who aren't afraid to explore the bitter side of the palate. If you have the ingredients handy a properly poured beverage should take less than a minute to make, and the mix makes a good daytime drink since the main ingredients aren't as boozy as vodka or gin.

For this cocktail you'll need sweet vermouth, Campari, club soda, orange wedge and of course, ice.


Americano Cocktail

Step 1: You can build this drink in a glass with ice. Use a lowball glass and, if possible, use one or two larger ice cubes instead of many smaller ones, as that will water down the drink.
