The Negroni cocktail was invented circa 1919 in Florence, Italy, at Caffe Rivoire. It’s a classic cocktail (made with equal parts Gin – Campari – Vermouth) that has made bitterness palatable for generations of drinkers.

What better way to start off the summer than with a whole week devoted to a classic cocktail? Imbibe Magazine and Campari ​launched National Negroni Week in 2013 to celebrate a world-renowned aperitif and to raise money for charitable causes. This year, more than three thousand bars and restaurants across the country are participating by making classic Negronis and concocting their own Negroni-inspired signature drinks. For each cocktail they sell from June 1-7, they’ll donate at least one dollar to a local charitable cause. #NegroniWeek is all about getting OUT and having a drink for a cause, check out our local venues and their charity partners.
