About Negroni Week
In the summer of 2013, Imbibe launched Negroni Week, a celebration of one of the world's great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charitable causes around the world. From June 2-8, 2014, bars across the U.S. (and some around the world) will be mixing up their favorite Negroni variations and donating a portion of proceeds from each one sold to a charity of their choice. Last year, hundreds of bars participated in Negroni Week, and we expect even more to be part of the 2014 festivities.
