Starting yesterday and continuing through June 8, bars around the world are serving their favorite Negroni variations and donating portions of proceeds to a charity. (You can check out the list of participating bars here.) We enjoyed six versions of the classic at Campari’s kickoff party last night, but that one that wins from us comes from Stockholm’s Linje Tio. Its bartenders changed the classic Campari-gin-vermouth combination ever-so-slightly with a spritz of lemon oil, making it light and bright and delicious.
So, be calm, carry on, and drink pink.
