Get Ready for Negroni Week!

Love a Negroni? Then get ready to raise your glass. We're officially naming May 27-June 3 Negroni Week, encouraging bars across the country to mix up their favorite variation and donate $1 from each one sold to a local charity of their choice. Why the Negroni? Because it’s one of our favorite cocktails, and while Negroni Week will celebrate the bittersweet Italian classic, it will also help raise money for some great causes. And Negroni Week promises to go out with a bang since we’re again partnering with Nostrana, the Portland, Oregon restaurant from James Beard-nominated chef Cathy Whims for its annual Negroni Social on Monday, June 3. Now in its third year, Nostrana's late-night bash will mix up 12 favorite Negroni variations while generating support for Outside In, a Portland-based organization that provides resources to homeless youth. Want to get in on the action? Stay tuned to our Facebook page for a chance to win tickets to Nostrana's Negroni Social, and be sure and let us know if your bar or restaurant plans to participate in Negroni Week so we can include you in a special shout-out.
