Welcome to Negroni Week, sponsored by Imbibe magazine and Campari, when bartenders around the country serve Negronis and variations on this classic drink of gin, vermouth and Campari to raise funds for charities. The New Orleans chapter of the US Bartenders Guild has chosen the New Orleans Musicians Assistance Fund as its local philanthropic organization since both professions usually work in bars. I scoured the interwebs for songs about the Negroni to no avail. Songs about gin, though, were in abundance. You can find a list of all participating New Orleans restaurants on the Negroni Week website. Now get out there and do some drinking to do some good!
