There’s a lot to be excited for this June. For one, the warm weather is upon us, and who doesn’t love that? More importantly, Negroni Week: June 6-12. For the fourth year in a row, the celebration of Italy’s red bittersweet apéritif teamed up with Imbibe Magazine to present Negroni Week, a week-long charity initiative. The sales from every Negroni or Negroni-related item sold at at participating retailers, bars, and restaurants worldwide will be donated to the charity of their choice.

To better prepare for this year’s week celebrating The Negroni – a mix of equal parts Campari, gin and sweet vermouth – has received a complete revamp to make finding participating locations near you easier. The website will also spotlight events, charities and participating bars and restaurants. A great example of this is the killer Negroni BBQ Burger from Umami Burger, featured below:
