It’s Negroni Week! Celebrate With These 10 Irresistible Cocktails

This week is Negroni Week, also known as our annual excuse to over-indulge in our favorite Campari-based cocktail. Restaurants and bars across America will be participating in Negroni Week by shaking up their best Negroni — as well as many inventive variations on the classic — and a portion of the profit of each one will be donated to a charity of establishments’ choice. To find out which bars near you are participating, you can see the full list here. Alternatively, you can celebrate from the comfort of your own home with these 10 Campari cocktail recipes.

The Americano cocktail is often referred to as a Negroni without the hangover. Campari is mixed with sweet vermouth and soda water for a low-proof, crisp, and refreshing drink choice.
