Negroni Week

“A Drink for a cause”

Negroni Week is a celebration of a world’s greatest cocktail. Negroni Week is also to raise funds for charities around the globe. Every year in June, for a week bars, restaurants, lounges etc mix the classic Negronis and new mixes with Negroni. This year Negroni Week is from 4th June to 10th June and is organised by Imbibe and Campari. The Negroni Week was started by Imbibe Magazine in 2013 in order to celebrate the cocktail and raise funds for charity. It grew from 120 participating venues to 7,700 venues around the globe and the funds raised till date are close to 1.5 million USD.
