In honor of Negroni Week sweeping the cocktail land next week (June 4-10), I spoke with Anne Louise Marquis, the National Portfolio Brand Ambassador of Campari America.

Negroni Weekis a celebration of one of the most perfect cocktail creations - the equal parts drink of gin, sweet vermouth, and Campari, but most importantly it is an international charity event that raises money for a variety of global causes. It is sponsored by Imbibe Magazine and Campari and has grown into a worldwide event with over 7,000 venues and businesses participating, but it has humble origins, originally starting out as "Negroni Social" with just a couple of bartenders in Portland, Oregon.

Find out all you need to know about Negroni Week, what it’s about, how it began, and how you too can drink for a good cause!

For our recipe this week we are sharing one of Anne Louise's favorite variations, The Right Hand, a cocktail created in 2007 by Michael Mcilroy at Milk & Honey in NYC.

The Right Hand 1.5 oz Aged Rum (Matusalem Gran Reserva) .75 oz Sweet Vermouth (Carpano Antica) .75 oz Campari 2 dashes chocolate bitters (Bittermens Xocolatl Mole Bitters) Stir over cracked ice until chilled, strain into a cocktail glass. Citrus garnish optional.
