Where to Drink During Negroni Week



The second week of June marks the beginning of Negroni Week once again. The cocktail that the week is named after is simple, delicious and refreshing. It involves taking equal parts gin, sweet vermouth, and Campari, stirring them together, straining and viola! The program, which started in 2013, is sponsored by Campari, and helps raise money for different charities around the world. When the idea first came to fruition, Negroni Week only had one hundred participating bars, it has now expanded to over 6,000 venues around the world.

The idea behind the week is simple. Every bar submits to be involved in the event by choosing a charity to donate their proceeds to. Participating bars then create a menu featuring the Negroni, or a variation, the customer orders the cocktail and proceeds go to charity. It’s so simple, and you can feel like a good person while ordering a drink.

This year that are a copious amount of San Antonio bars participating in the charity week. I’ve listed them, the charity they are donating to, and the Negroni options they are offering below. Make sure you follow my instagram for drink pictures as I visit, and check back for a Negroni Week recap on the blog later this month.
