Negroni Week launched in 2013 as a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charities around the world. From 2013 to 2016, Negroni Week grew from 100 participating venues to 6,000 venues around the world, and to date, they have collectively raised nearly $900,000 for charitable causes.
“The Negroni is a signature cocktail and a QT favourite, so the opportunity to celebrate it through mixing classics and modern variations with a twist, as well as serving them up for a great cause is something we’re thrilled to be involved with”, said Jared Thibault.
