I love the special Campari ice made by bar manager Christopher Longoria at ~1760~, where you’ll find three kinds of Negroni variations on the menu. Order the Negroni Sbagliato to experience the Campari ice cube.
~HUMPHRY SLOCOMBE~ is serving a limited special-edition Negroni Pop ($3.25), made with Campari, gin, vermouth, and grapefruit.
Negroni popcorn? Yup, Negroni popcorn. You’ll find it at ~PERBACCO~.
On Wednesday June 4th (from 6-10pm), Tango & Stache will be at ~HOLY WATER~ (warning: music on that link) serving Negroni bacon tacos with Bulldog gin-soaked berries, and on Thursday June 5th from 6pm-10pm, he’ll be at ~RYE~; both bars will be serving Negroni specials all week/night long.
At the ~BURRITT ROOM/BERLINETTA~, swing by for the Berlinetta Playlist on June 6th from 7pm-11pm. Try the Local Yokel Negroni made with Campari, Aperol, 209 Gin, the brand-new Jardesca Aperitiva, and seltzer. Bonus: Mo Hodges, formerly bartender at Big, will be there!
I will definitely need to try the Calabrese Negroni (made with Calabrian chile peppers and apricots) at ~MICHAEL MINA~.
You can check out the bar of the brand-new ~THE EUROPEAN~, opening Friday June 6th—Adam Wilson will have plenty of Negroni variations for you, and Aveline’s pastry chef Kaley Laird is making Negroni gumdrops.
That’s just a sampling! There are so many things going on through June 8th, here in the city and beyond. Check out the full list here. And don’t forget: participating bars and restaurants will be donating a portion of every Negroni sale to a charity of their choice, so some of your boozing will go to a good cause.
