In the movie "The Tourist" the waiter asks Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp if they would like another drink. Because of his Italian accent, I couldn't make out what he was offering them. However after much searching it turns out it's a Campari Americano. You're welcome.
The Americano is a drink invented to offset the slightly bitter taste of Campari. It was first served in the 1860's at Garspare Campari's bar in Milan, Italy and called the Milano-Torino because of the origins of its ingredients, but was later renamed because of its popularity amongst American tourists during Prohibition.
