If you’re a negroni fanatic then this week in Charleston was meant for you. There’s not one, but two amazing events taking place across the Holy City to celebrate the cocktail classic. If you want to hear the ways you can get your negroni fix from June 4th through June 10th, keep scrolling.
Negroni Week 2018
It’s Simple. You Drink. We Donate.
Since 2013 Campari And Imbibe Magazine have teamed up for Negroni Week. For one week each year thousands of bars around the world mix up the classic cocktail to raise money for a long list of charitable causes. In the event’s 5 year run more than a million dollars have been donated.
This year The Gin Joint has selected the Lowcountry Food Bank as our charity of choice. This South Carolina non-profit is fighting against hunger in the state’s 10 coastal counties. In 2017 alone they distributed more than 28 million pounds of food to those in need.
For every cocktail on our Negroni Week menu, The Gin Joint will donate $1 to the Lowcountry Food Bank. But when the event wraps up we aren’t stopping there. We’re counting the money you helped us raise and doubling our donation.
We love a negroni as much as the next guy – but knowing $2 of each one will go to a local cause is some really good cocktail karma.
The Amazing Hat Trick Negroni Tour
For our next trick we’ll be pouring the Cabinet Escape.
If drinking for a cause wasn’t enough, High Wire Distilling Co. will once again host the Amazing Hat Trick Negroni Tour.
When you order “The Cabinet Escape” off our Negroni Week menu you’re pulling two rabbits out of your negroni drinking hat. Not only are you drinking for a cause, we’ll help you fill up that Negroni Tour passport for a cool prize.
The Gin Joint is just one of 20 local bars and restaurants mixing up the magic.
When you stop by this week, just ask us for a passport and we’ll be happy to help you start your stamp collection. Word on the street is that you just need 7 stamps to claim what Hire Wire Distilling Co. is calling a “useful” prize.
