Eight Campari-Sponsored Events Throughout Portland.
Douglas has setup eight individual events that each feature great Negroni variations, plus anything from DJ+dancing to free food (like Il Solito who will hand over one meatball with every Negroni, and Enoteca with their Negroni snow cones and free antipasti).
Come find us at these bars…
Negroni Social Retrospective
June 24-30 at Nostrana and Enoteca Nostrana.
The Negroni Cocktail is turning 100, a century having passed since Count Camillo Negroni fatefully asked bartender Fosco Scarselli to fortify his Americano (the cocktail of vermouth, aperitivo bitters, soda and ice) with gin at Café Casoni in Florence in 1919.
Vermouth, Campari, Gin: the Negroni was born.
It’s a wonderfully simple and versatile drink that easily lends itself to experimentation by means of substitution of ingredients.
And experiment we have.
THE NEGRONI AT NOSTRANA
In 2010, under then Bar Manager Douglas Derrick, Nostrana embarked upon a mission to create a monthly-changing Negroni variation. After a year had passed, these Negroni of the Month were featured at the first annual Negroni Social.
The Social ultimately became the inspiration for Negroni Week(!), which today is an international affair with over 12,000 participating venues worldwide.
Meanwhile, the Negroni of the Month lives on at Nostrana. What began as an in-house effort eventually grew into a globe-trotting collaboration. Over the years, they’ve featured recipes from friends near and far. Presently, recipes are curated by virtue of a Portland-wide competition sponsored by Campari, both facilitated by and later featured at the Negroni Social when we kick off Negroni Week!
NEGRONI WEEK 2019
NOSTRANA AND ENOTECA NOSTRANA
For Negroni Week, Nostrana and Enoteca Nostrana will commemorate the success of the program by featuring 12 Retrospective Negroni from Negroni Socials over the past nine years.
Come taste the last nine years of Negroni Social’s best!
