Negroni by Dave Stolte

Negroni fans, start your liver stretches: Imbibe Magazine and Campari are presenting the second annual Negroni Week, taking place from June 2-8, 2014. During Negroni Week, participating bars across the country and around the world – over 1,000 as this post goes live – are mixing up Negronis and donating at least $1 from each one sold to a charity of their choice. L.A.’s own ink. and over a dozen Orange County bars are donating to Inspire Artistic Minds. Campari has announced that it will donate $10,000 to the qualified charity of the bar or restaurant that raises the most money during this year’s Negroni Week.

Besides the classic Negroni – gin, Campari, sweet vermouth – guests can look forward to variations like Negroni Jell-O shots with Campari Dust Pixy Stix, one of a week’s worth of recipes created by Gabriella Mlynarczyk of ink. Rivera is serving the Negroni No. 9 (Pierde Almas +9, Barolo Chinato, Campari, orange and grapefruit essence), while Bouchon Bistro is offering Negroni macarons.

Special events include: a Negroni Week Ice Cream Social at Short Order on June 2; Harlowe is hosting a Negroni Week Soirée on June 3, featuring a “tap takeover” of Negronis with Beefeater, Beefeater 24, and Plymouth Gin; and Bowling for Negronis is taking place on June 5 at The Spare Room.
