Negroni Week 2016: NYC bars toasting to the fourth-annual charity cocktail event

For Negroni Week, have a bittersweet cocktail and give back at the same time.

For the fourth year, this week-long event takes place at restaurants and bars all over the world. Each participating venue chooses a charity that receives a portion of the proceeds for each Negroni sold. So get drinking.

Not familiar with the Negroni? The classic Italian drink is a favorite of cocktail aficionados and is made with equal parts gin, sweet vermouth and Campari.

Here's where to celebrate in NYC this week. To find more venues, visit the Negroni Week website (negroniweek.com).
