The Negroni was supposedly created by a Count of the same name in Florence, Italy in 1919. However much of that is true, it remains a classic aperitif, one that forms the basis of The Oliver from Herb & Lou's. It channels the characteristics of the cocktail with a spicy cherry-orange flavor enhanced by the Wormwood essence of Torino vermouth, allowing for the use of gin or whiskey to create a modern version.
