June 4th marks the start of a very special season for Campari lovers: Negroni Week.
Across Farmers Restaurant Group, we love this annual opportunity to serve delicious cocktails for a cause. This year’s benefit is No Kid Hungry, which is a movement of teachers, chefs, community leaders, parents, lawmakers, and CEOs with one shared belief: No kid in America should go hungry.
We are also pretty psyched to wow Negroni lovers, as well as newbies to the Negroni scene, with a few of our spins on this classic cocktail. While a traditional Negroni is made with gin, a bitter aperitif (such as Campari), sweet vermouth, and finished with an orange twist, our Beverage Director, Jon Arroyo, has come up with some very special handcrafted alternatives.
Our Negroni cocktails use our very own Founding Spirits, including Gold Medal Winner Founding Spirits Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro. We will be serving three Negroni-inspired craft cocktails from June 4-10 at Founding Farmers, Farmers & Distillers, and Farmers Fishers Bakers:
Negroni Sour is a smooth and creamy mix of our Founding Spirits Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro, gin, Campari, lemon, orange, and egg white.
Negroni Swizzle is a delightful mix of Founding Spirits Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro, gin, Campari, cinnamon, and lemon.
The Silent Negroni includes Founding Spirits Arroyo’s “Never Bitter” Amaro, Mezcal El Silencio Espadin, Campari, and Pamplemousse Rose.
If this trio of taste isn’t enough to get you out and about, perhaps and you can have a Negroni Week party of your own and order some of our award-winning Founding Spirits online. Sponsor Imbibe Magazine has lots of recipes online and even Negroni week t-shirts to order.
Negroni Week is an annual international fundraiser put on by Imbibe magazine and Campari. To date, they have collectively raised nearly $1.5 million for charitable causes. No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger through effective programs that provide kids with the food they need.
