The team at il Porcellino is celebrating 100 years of the Negroni during Negroni Week 2019 , running Sunday, June 24 – Monday, June 30.

The restaurant is known for their more than a dozen takes on Italy’s most iconic cocktail (which you can enjoy during happy hour!), but there’s one that stands out as a favorite: the Fernet Negroni. This iteration leans into its bitterness with extra Campari rounded out with Fernet-Branca and Cynar, an artichoke amaro. During Negroni Week, $1 from each sale of il Porcellino’s Fernet Negroni goes to support Water for People
