Negroni Week is Coming…

Negroni Week

Fans of the Negroni cocktail, listen up! Your favorite time of year is fast approaching! The first week in June marks Negroni Week. Sponsored by Imbibe Magazine and Campari, this event is both delicious and charitable…

Inspired by Douglas Derrick’s Negroni Social event at Nostrana in Portland, Oregon, Imbibe launched Negroni Week, a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charitable causes around the world. From June 2-8, 2014, bars across the U.S. (and some around the world) will be mixing up their favorite Negroni variations and donating a portion of proceeds from each one sold to a charity of their choice. Last year, hundreds of bars participated in Negroni Week, and we expect even more to be part of the 2014 festivities.

And this year, I have the honor of participating in this worthy and delicious event! I’ll be developing my own riff on the Negroni, which also happens to be one of my all time favorites. The recipe will be featured here as well as on NegroniWeek.com. To prep yourselves for this worthwhile cause, take a look at the bars and restaurants in your area that will be participating this year, and which charities they’ve chosen to donate to. Drink for a cause!

I'd love to hear what YOU think! Scratch a few thoughts down there, why dontcha?
