Triangle businesses celebrate Negroni Week
One of Italy's best gifts to the world — the Negroni — is on full display at Triangle bars and restaurants this week.
Driving the news: The ruby-red cocktail, which brings together bitter and sweet flavors in perfect harmony, is being celebrated across the world for Negroni Week, an event organized by Imbibe Magazine and the Campari Group, known for its liqueur Campari, which is a critical ingredient in a Negroni.
- Not that you needed an excuse to imbibe, but it's also for a good cause. Some of the proceeds will go to charity Slow Food, which advocates for sustainability and diversity in the food industry.
