Aspri Spirits kick started the Negroni week with media gathering and celebrating at Razzberry Rhinoceros on 5th June 2017 in Mumbai.Blogger & Influencer Rojita Tiwari designed the classic & innovative Negroni menu and Celebrity Bartender Nitin Tewari briskly concocted the Negroni cocktails. The elegantly prepared menu included Cutting Chai Negroni, Crawford Sour and Gola Negroni mixed with classic Negroni which were inspired by India’s favorite local drinks.

Compared to the previous year, the number of participating bars for the noble cause went up. Aspri Spirits received an overwhelming response from the bars and the patrons and they look forward to hosting Negroni week each year. India has ranked No 2 in Asia and No 14 in the World, which is a great achievement.

 

NEGRONI is a cocktail which has left its mark on the history of the Milanese Aperitif and is known throughout the World. Negroni is made of one part Campari, one part gin and one part Vermouth garnished with orange peel.

To participate, each bar signs up at negroniweek.com, chooses from the list of recommended charities, and makes an immediate donation to that charity. They can also return during and after Negroni Week to make additional donations to their chosen charity. After Negroni Week is complete, they tally the raised amount collectively by all the participating bars, restaurants and partners.
