7 days, 3 ingredients, 1 great cause. Negroni Week is back, celebrating 100 years of the Negroni.
Negroni Week is back and what better way to curb your winter blues than with a classic Italian aperitif in hand? Running 24th – 30th June, Negroni Week marks more than just your typical commercial venture. Coming into its seventh year, it also represents a week-long charity initiative, sponsored by Campari and Imbibe Magazine. It sees both on and off-trade supporters donate a minimum of AUD $1 per drink to a charity of their choice.
This year also marks the centenary of the Negroni, one of the world’s most iconic classic cocktails. Here are a few of top picks on where to celebrate Negroni Week in Sydney.
This boundary-pushing CBD bar is fulfilling its reputation with a limited-edition Breakfast Negroni. Available by word of mouth only, the cocktail comes infused with banana bread, tonka and coffee beans. Ask the PS40 bartenders for this piece of art, available now until 30th June from 4pm.
