Negroni Week 2020 is being held from September 14 to September 20. Celebrated internationally every year since 2013, Negroni Week was established as a fundraising initiative by Italian liquor brand Campari. With thousands of bars participating each year, they’ve collectively raised roughly three million dollars for various charitable causes.  This year, Negroni Week goes digital, everyone can celebrate safely by sipping on Negroni at home.

Making a Negroni is simple and requires basic ingredients; this has led to a number of variations of the original cocktail. To help celebrate World Negroni Week in style, we asked Hemali Bendre, Assistant Bartender at The Bombay Canteen to share a couple of easy Negroni recipes with a twist on the classic.  "Created in the year 1919, Negroni has been a favourite classic for many years. Although it is spirit forward, it’s an easy drinking cocktail that is sweet, citrus, and bitter enough that you would love to order one more. It tastes best when served chilled and well balanced," said Hemali.
