negroni week

[N]egroni week, the global effort to raise money for charities around the world is back again, for its fourth year. Negroni Week has grown from 100 participating venues to over 6,000 around the world. Who knew gin could do so much good?

We’ll be doing our part and drinking negronis (through June 11) at participating venues all week long, the boozy kind, and the coffee-infused kind. Here are two cafés and two bars that are participating in Negroni Week with coffee-infused (some alcoholic, some not) negronis.
