Origins of the Americano Highball:

The Americano cocktail dates back to the late 19th century and was originally known as the "Milano-Torino" because it combined ingredients from Milan (Campari) and Turin (vermouth). The addition of soda water came later, giving birth to what we now know as the Americano Highball. It became popular in America during Prohibition when people were looking for ways to mask the taste of bootlegged spirits.

This simple yet sophisticated cocktail has stood the test of time and remains a favorite among drinkers who appreciate its balance of bitter, sweet, and bubbly flavors.
