Third Annual Negroni Week Brings Deliciousness of All Kinds




With the classic Negroni cocktail serving as the call to action, bars, restaurants and retailers across the U.S. and around the world are gearing up for the third-annual Negroni Week, which will be held June 1-7. During Negroni Week participants pledge to donate a portion of the proceeds from every Negroni or Negroni related item to the charity of their choice. Oh, and it isn’t just libations that are being served up! Items like SoapDistillery’s Negroni Soap and Body Oil and Stewart and Clair Negroni Lip Balm will be sold online, with a portion of proceeds going to charity.


Currently, more than 1,000 hot spots from the U.S. and 23 additional countries across the globe have signed up online at Negroni Week. As of May 6, the initiative is already close to exceeding last year’s total participation of 1,325 locations and has blown past 2014’s total of 18 countries!

To kick off the festivities, Negroni Week sponsors Campari and Imbibe Magazine will hold launch events across the country to help raise awareness for the cause and local charities:
