Celebrate Negroni Week at H Tasting Lounge, September 13 – 19
7 days, 7 Negroni variations, 2 cocktail dice, and 1 simple way to give back
From September 13 – 19, H Tasting Lounge (HTL) will be taking part in Negroni Week, a charitable initiative in celebration of one of the world’s greatest cocktails, in which bars and restaurants around the globe mix classic Negronis and Negroni variations for a greater cause.
H Tasting Lounge is celebrating Negroni Week by offering guests seven different variations of the cocktail, plus a fun way to decide which cocktail they enjoy with a roll of two four-sided cocktail dice. Each number rolled corresponds to a Negroni variation, crafted by Premium Bartender, Andrew Kong.
How it works:
Guests donate $2 to participate in rolling the dice. All participation fees, and partial proceeds from each Negroni sold, will be donated to Slow Food International, an organization preventing the disappearance of local food cultures and traditions.
If the guest rolls an 8, they will receive a complimentary Infinity Negroni Cocktail. In addition, HTL will donate $10 to Slow Food International.
If the guest rolls the numbers 3 through 7, the dice decides which HTL premium Negroni concoction they will enjoy ($15 per cocktail).
If the guest rolls a 2, also known as snake eyes, they donate $10 to Slow Food International, in addition to covering the price of the Negroni.
HTL’s Negroni variations include:
#2 – Beefeater Gin, Campari, Cinzano, Bitters
#3 – Appleton Rum, Cachaça, Campari, Passionfruit, Vermouth, Pineapple Star Anise Bitters
#4 – Olmeca Altos Plata Tequila, Aperol, Nonino, Bianco Vermouth, Grapefruit
#5 – Pandan Infused Dewar’s Scotch, Campari, Sweet Vermouth, Islay Mist, Coconut Water
#6 – Peach infused Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Cynar, Sweet Vermouth, Black Tea, Mint
#7 – Sheringham Akavit, Bitter Bianco, Lillet Rose, Bitters, Elderflower, Absinthe Rinse
#8 – Infinity Negroni – A Negroni blend encompassing continuous small quantities from all the other Negroni variations until it makes up a unique bottle with an inimitable taste
