Campari, gin, and vermouth: The Negroni is one of the hallmarks of classic cocktails. Simple, elegant, and so lovely to drink, The Negroni has earned itself not only a spot in the pantheon of essential cocktails, but also a full week devoted to its celebration.
Negroni Week 2016 will take place from June 6 to 12 this year, and will find bars and restaurants around the world once again offering their take on the Negroni as a fundraiser for a favourite cause.
Started in 2013, Negroni Week has expanded in participation over the years, and in 2015 raised $321,000, nearly tripling the amount raised the previous year.
Over 20 Calgary bars and restaurants will be taking part this year, and include popular local spots such as Teatro, Brasserie Kensington, Avec Bistro, The Derrick Gin Mill & Kitchen, Cibo, and Midtown Kitchen & Bar.
The Negroni Week site details each of the venue’s Negroni offerings, as well as the charity of choice.
When: June 6 to 12
