The Negroni is a cocktail that shouldn’t be absent at any celebration. Christmas is no exception. ..

This cocktail can be traced back to a bartender from Florence, who decided to surprise his regular customer Count Camilo Negroni, by preparing a strong innovative cocktail. In the same vein, the PortoBay Búzios hotel has decided to give this drink a twist by replacing the orange with lemon and adding a cinnamon stick, to provide a perfect combination of flavours.
