Negroni Week is coming on the horizon! June 5-11th celebrate this awesome three ingredient cocktail at various participating bars and restaurants in New York City and beyond.

What’s a Negroni? It’s a simple and classic cocktail comprised of three ingredients: Campari, Gin, and Vermouth. It’s quite strong and has an acquired taste, but once you sip them once or twice, you will love them!

“Negroni Week launched in 2013 as a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charities around the world. From 2013 to 2016, Negroni Week grew from about 100 participating venues to 6,000 venues around the world, and to date, they have collectively raised nearly $900,000 for charitable causes”- Negroniweek.com
