There’s more than one way to imbibe a Negroni.
The third annual Negroni Week launches June 1, and during the seven-day-long event, bars from around the world will mix up thousands of variations on the classic cocktail. (The traditional recipe contains equal parts Campari, gin and sweet vermouth.) More than 2,500 bars, restaurants and retail vendors from 28 countries are participating, and a portion of the proceeds from each Negroni sold will be donated to charity.
While we certainly will be drinking a lot of them that week—we are especially looking forward to visiting Denver’s Green Russell bar, which filled a 53-gallon Wild Turkey barrel to make the world’s largest barrel-aged Negroni—we’ll also be eating Campari-flavored desserts by the plateful. Here are seven creative Negroni edibles that you’ll also want to track down.
