One of the world’s most-ordered cocktails is facing its annual limelight this week. Delightfully simple to make and bracingly bitter, it’s no surprise that this cocktail is more popular than ever.
WHAT IS NEGRONI WEEK?
For one week in September (13-19th), bars and restaurants will mix classic Negronis and Negroni variations for a great cause. To participate, each venue signs up at negroniweek.com, chooses from their list of official charity partners, and makes a donation to that charity. Then they can return during and after Negroni Week to make additional donations to their chosen charity. After Negroni Week is complete, they tally up how much was raised collectively by all of our participating bars, restaurants and partners.
