This week the negroni gets a turn in the spotlight, and not just because it’s one of the world’s most-loved cocktails.

As well as celebrating the Campari classic, Negroni Week, which runs from 5–11 June, also aims to raise money for a raft of charitable causes.

Bars and restaurants across the globe – including New Zealand – are taking part. Head to  the likes of The Gin Room in Auckland, Five and Dime in Wellington and The Bunker in Queenstown – or visit negroniweek.com for a full list of participating venues across the country.
