It's a bittersweet week, but really, more sweet than bitter because there's drinking wonderful cocktails and giving to charity involved. We're talking about Negroni Week, which is June 6-12 in 2016, presented by Imbibe Magazine and Campari. The weeklong event launched in 2013 as a celebration of the classic gin, sweet vermouth, orange twist, Campari cocktail and an effort to raise money for charitable causes worldwide. From 2013 to 2014, Negroni Week grew from more than 100 participating venues to more than 1,300 participating venues around the world and more than $120,000 raised for charities. In 2015, more than 3,500 venues around the world mixed their favorite Negroni variations and raised over $320,000 for charitable causes. Find a participating venue near you.
