Negroni Week, June 6 - 12

Welcome to Negroni Week! Bars and restaurants throughout the country will be donating at least $1 from each Negroni sold to their favorite charity. Restaurants under Main Course Management will be donating a portion of the proceeds of Negroni sales to the Utah Rivers Council, a grassroots organization dedicated to the conservation and stewardship of Utah’s rivers and sustainable clean water sources for Utah’s people and wildlife.

San Francisco Treat from Stanza
My visit to Stanza last month is where I enjoyed my first Negroni. It's a refreshing drink make from sweet vermouth, gin and bitters and garnished with an orange peel. There are quite a few places to sample Negronis this week while giving back to the community. 

Check out the Negroni Week offerings from Main Course Management: 

Under Current Bar: Rye Negroni Flip with whole egg, rye Campari and sweet vermouth;
Current Fish & Oyster: Sparking Quill with sweet vermouth, Campari, gin and sparkling wine;
Stanza Italian Bistro & Wine Bar: Coccinella with sweet vermouth, Campari, chocolate bitters, lime and simple syrup;
Café Niche: Italian ’75 with lemon, gin, Campari and rose bubbles;
Trio Café Cottonwood and Trio Café Downtown: Salted Mezcal Negroni with chocolate bitters, saline, Campari, sweet vermouth and chocolate bitters; and
Oasis Café: Bellini Negroni with house made Campari sorbet.

Main Course’s Beverage Director Jim Santangelo and Under Current Bar’s General Manager Amy Eldredge are cocktail geniuses and I can't wait to sample their variations on this classic cocktail.  Remember they're only available June 6 through June 12, but Stanza always has an impressive Negroni menu, so you won't miss out!
