History of the Americano Cocktail
The Americano was first served in creator Gaspare Campari's bar in the 1860s. The cocktail was originally known as the "Milano-Torino" - Campari from Milan (Milano) and Cinzano from Turin (Torino). During Prohibition, the Italians noticed a surge of American tourists, who enjoyed the cocktail. As a compliment to American visitors, the cocktail became known as the "Americano" later on.
