Drink for a cause during Negroni Week

See also

The classic Negroni was invented in Florence, Italy circa 1919, and has changed the way people view and taste cocktails with a bitter twist. The drink is also the basis for Negroni Week hosted by Imbibe Magazine and Campari, inspired in part by Douglas Derrick’s Negroni Social event at Nostrana in Portland, Oregon. It is a celebration of the beloved Negroni and a reason to give to charity. There are close to 700 bars nationwide signed up to participate. Each one will donate $1 of every Negroni sale to a charity of their choice. To see a complete list and search by area of the bars, visit www.negroniweek.com.

Negroni Week runs from June 2nd through the 8th.

The classic Negroni is made with Campari, gin, and vermouth.

1 oz. gin
1 oz. Campari
1 oz. sweet vermouth
Ice cubes
Tools: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer
Glass: cocktail or double rocks
Garnish: orange twist

Stir ingredients in a mixing glass, strain into a chilled cocktail glass (or ice-filled double rocks glass) and garnish.

To celebrate the upcoming Negroni Week, here is Malena, a twist on the classic recipe by Dushan Zaric of Employees Only in NYC.

1 oz. Campari
1 oz. Rye Whiskey
1 oz. Ruby Port
3 Dashes Orange Bitters
5 Drops Orange Flower Water

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Garnish with an orange peel.
