Italy’s beloved three-ingredient cocktail, the Negroni, is traditionally a mix of equal parts gin, Campari and sweet vermouth, stirred and served with an orange slice. Cue Negroni Week, held this year from June 24 – 30 which benefits the restaurants’ charity of choice, pledging $1 from each featured Negroni sold throughout the week. For Negroni Week this year, Lettuce mixologists have once again rolled up their sleeves and picked up their shakers (or stirrers, if that’s more your bag) to present classic and modern takes on the Negroni.
