A cornerstone of the Italian cocktail canon, the Americano was derived from the Milano-Torino, a combination of red bitter liqueur and sweet vermouth—MARTINI & ROSSI Bitter Liqueur and Rubino Vermouth di Torino. Topped with seltzer water and garnished with a slice of orange, it’s la dolce vita in a glass.
