Cocktail classes at Antica Torre Tornabuoni

Would you like to know the secrets of a real barman? And how about learning to prepare the drinks yourself?

The Mixology Techniques in Tower is a cocktail class for those who eager to appreciate our bar, our drinks and become a barman for one day.

The Price is 100 euros for 2 pax for an hour of cocktails, included, of course, 4 cocktails that guests will prepare.

If you wish to start to train at home, here goes the recipe of the Negroni, a typical Tuscan drink, supposedly invented in Florence in 1919 at Caffè Casoni. It is said that Count Camillo Negroni asked the bartender, Fosco Scarselli, to strengthen his favorite cocktail. His regular Americano was suddenly transformed by adding gin rather than the normal soda water. To help differentiate between the old and new, the bartender also added an orange garnish rather than the typical lemon garnish of the Americano.


20ml of Gin
20ml of Sweet Vermouth
20ml of Campari
1 fresh orange peel


  1. Fill a short rocks glass with ice and then layer up the three components.
  2. Stir with a straw or bar spoon.
  3. Garnish with an orange peel or add a slice of orange if you would like a more distinct citrus note.
  4. Enjoy!
