Celebrating a decade of delicious negroni creations, Negroni Week returns this year between September 12 and 18. A celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails, and a way to raise much-needed funds for charitable causes, Negroni Week is an event you won’t want to miss.
Launched in 2013 by Imbibe Magazine, in partnership with Slow Food and Campari, Negroni Week was devised as a way to, “cultivate community, foster equity and justice, and seek a better world for all through food and beverage,” according to the event’s website. Slow Food was chosen as the official Negroni Week partner because, “the organization addresses so many of the needs participating Negroni Week venues have been most interested in supporting over the past 10 years.” From sustainability and education, to equity and diversity in food, drink and hospitality, Negroni Week is about much more than terrifically tasty tipples.
Today, Negroni Week involves thousands of venues around the globe, and has so far raised over $3 million for various charities. Donations are used by the Slow Food Negroni Fund to give direct support to those in hospitality.
With more than 50 Toronto venues taking part, it will be easy to find your favourite negroni creation. From Little Sister Food Bar to Ascari, Sweaty Betty’s, Patois, and more, the city’s eateries will be mixing up myriad types of negronis this week. Opt for the classic, with gin, sweet vermouth, Campari and an orange twist garnish, or a modern mixer that takes Campari into novel territory. At Eataly’s Trattoria Milano, you’ll find a negroni menu that includes traditional and unique takes. A “must-try for scotch-lovers,” The Big Smoke combines Lagavulin Scotch Whisky, Campari, and Cinzano into a bold, bittersweet, smoky sipper. Meanwhile, guests at Chef’s Hall, can share classic negroni pitchers for $40.
