When in Summerlin, Echo and Rig is “the place” for good food, wine & drink. Equipped with a top of the line butcher shop, a restaurant with impeccable plating & ingredients, and a bonafide bar program, is always at the top of the list.

It should be no surprise that for this year’s Negroni Week, it is a mecca for the Negroni. Beverage Director, Robert Jacob-Wank is providing a Negroni with a delicious twist. His “Charred Oak Negroni” harnesses the magic that happens in the barrel with the charred oak infused Bulldog gin. To counterbalance the richness of the infused gin, he chose the elegant and floral, Carpano Bianco, and the bittersweet rhubarb darling, Aperol.

Come once… come often… come drink one for a good cause!

Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant has long been a Las Vegas staple for delicious Italian food, wine & spirits. And for the upcoming Negroni Week, it is a perfect fit.

For the week of June 6-12 you can drink the most iconic aperativo and do it for charity! Ferraro’s is featuring a Negroni with the complex & citrus-forward, Tanquerey Ten, classically bitter Campari, and the Cocchi’s Barolo Chinato.

Many are familiar with the classic vermouth, Cocchi Americano, but the Chinato is cut from different cloth. Chinato is the Italian word for Quinine which makes up a good part of the flavor profile of this high end and rare aromatized wine. It fetches a high price, partly due to its use of the “King of Italian Reds” which is Barolo. This powerful, earthy and tannic red makes up the backbone of the Chinato and bolsters an already savory and delicious cocktail.

When you stop in, ask for chapter member Brege Reilly to stir you up some magic!

Mmm… Wake up and smell the Negroni!

During Negroni WeekOak & Ivy is not to be missed. Located in one of the newer and most unique sections of Las Vegas, the Container Park, it is a vital component of East Fremont Street which has become a the new cultural heartbeat of Las Vegas.

Since the bar’s inception, it has been a flag holder for the art of the craft and will forever be intertwined with Las Vegas bar culture. It is not surprising that Oak & Ivy will be participating in Negroni Week with a very tasty selection.

At Oak & Ivy, you’ll find the “Spanish Roast Negroni” ready for service. It contains the wonderfully aromatic Yzaguirre Bianco Vermouth, with the Yerba Matte infused Apostole Gin, and classic Campari; the is all dripped through Cafe Bustelo using a Japanese slow drip coffee infuser.

So come down to Oak & Ivy June 14-17 to sip and savor your newest favorite “morning” Negroni.

Oh Negroni Week… Another stellar reason to drink the world’s perfect cocktail!

This year’s weeklong charity event is continuing to expand venues and proliferate palates all over the city. What is your best bet on the Fremont experience? Oscar’s Steakhouse. The Downtown neo-classic not only features one Negroni but has an entire Negroni menu!

The one to look out for is the Popeye Doyle’s Negroni. The bright bitterness of Campari is offset by Bordeaux’s favorite aromatized wine, floral and delicate, Lillet Blanc. It is all combined with dry and triumphant bubbles; the champagne whose effervescence acts as an enticing flavor accelerator.

As it says on the menu, Popeye Doyle’s Negroni, “If you are on a train, being chased through France, this is the cocktail you want on your side.”
