Oh yeah! Negroni Week!!!!

Its again time to raise money for charity by drinking your favorite cocktail, the Negroni! Now in it’s 4th year, it is expanding its repertoire of venues and flavor profiles.

Tacos & Beer is well known for fresh, vibrant & rustic comida mexicana, craft beer and good-times o’plenty, but not necessarily for a classic Italian cocktail.

But this year you will have take a closer look, you will find a beautiful surprise.

Katie Cruz has brought together equal parts of the classically delicate Plymouth Gin, along the sponsor Campari and the French vermouth, Dolin Rouge. To add further complexity to the world’s perfect drink, she has put these three heavenly ingredients in a barrel that once contained Xicaru Mezcal.

The time is almost here for Negroni Week.

Now in it’s 4th year, #NegroniWeek features venues world-wide, with multiple variations of the ubër-cocktail. All in the name of charity, it is a dam good time. The USBG has again partnered with  Campari & Imbibe Magazine to make this glorious week happen, and in 2015, helped raise over $350,000.

This year, Las Vegas has a plethora of choices when it comes to flavor and locales to enjoy the week. The first one that we would like to feature is the Sand Dollar. Located on Polaris and Spring Mt, it is a favorite of industry professionals and civilians alike. It is the perfect place to imbibe for a cause!

 

Lead Bartender and USBGLV Member, Jessica Westergom:

“We kept our featured Negroni super classic with the exception of adding a barrel aged element to it. We used a spiced Amaro to season our American Oak barrel before adding Campari, Tanqueray Gin, and Carpano Antica Vermouth- all equal parts. We stir and prefer to serve over one large rock with a fresh orange swath, but if a guest prefers it up, we’d be happy to serve it that way also. We chose Shade Tree as our charity of choice for Negroni week.”
