Negroni Week: One part charity, one part campari & one part fun!
June 1, 2015
It’s the official start of #NegroniWeek and from June 1st to June 7th, restaurants and bars all over the world will be mixing up unique Negroni variations for a great cause. The week-long celebration was first launched by Campari and Imbibe Magazine back in 2013 to celebrate the classic Italian drink and to raise money for charitable causes. Today, it has grown to include thousands of restaurants and bars across the globe and is having its moment with cocktail enthusiasts, from hipster to jet set.
Here at JPC Event Group’s Savor Catering Division, we lovingly craft custom cocktails for our clients and their guests. This year, for a unique and unexpected twist that is delighting guests near and far (especially those of the foodie variety!), we have customized gourmet cuisine and cocktail pairing bars at special events.
A Negroni and a Nosh? We’ll drink to that!
The classic Negroni calls for equal parts gin, sweet vermouth, and Campari and yields and incredibly refreshing cocktail that is perfectly balanced- a little bit bitter and a little bit sweet. It was invented in Florence, Italy in 1919 and is considered to be an aperitif, which is an alcoholic beverage usually served before a meal to stimulate the appetite.
Perfect the Negroni cocktail at home with this no-fail recipe!
Combine 1 oz. of gin, 1 oz. of Campari, and 1 oz. of sweet vermouth in an ice-filled Old Fashioned glass; stir gently and garnish with an orange twist.
With our new office located on the Northside, we can’t wait to immerse ourselves into everything Pittsburgh has to offer, including the blossoming food and cocktail scene. Raise a glass to a charitable cause by enjoying a Negroni at one of these local participating restaurants and bars!
