Negroni Week

Seven days, three types of spirits and one simple way to give back: That’s Negroni Week 2019. Presented by Imbibe magazine and Campari, we are joining bars and restaurants across the globe to stir up classic Negronis and Negroni variations for a great cause. This year, our featured Negroni is the Fernet Negroni with Fords London Dry Gin, Campari, Dolin Vermouth Blanc, Fernet Branca, Cynar Amaro and Orange. $1 from every Fernet Negroni sold goes to benefit the Water For People. We also offer an extensive Negroni menu throughout the month of June.
