imbibe & CAMPARI Present Portland Negroni Week – June 5-11, 2017

Portland Negroni Week is upon us as it returns from June 5-11, 2017. Negroni Week is presented by imbibe Magazine and Campari and events are hosted globally during this international event.

A negroni consists of three simple ingredients of campari, gin, and vermouth. Sometimes the bartender may add something special to put their own twist on this legendary drink.

Scheduled events in Portland will take place at Doug Fir Lounge, Jack Rabbit, Bit House Saloon, Breakside Brewery, The Wayback, Circa 33, Woodsman Tavern, Interurban, Rue, Produce Row, Nostrana, and The Fireside. All of these events will raise money for various local charities.
