It's Negroni Week! Wait, what the heck is a Negroni?
I'll be making a rare public appearance at the Yost Theater in downtown Santa Ana during the DTSA Farmers Market this Thursday, June 5, at 5:30 p.m. to explain the sordid history of the cocktail we're celebrating this week.
Then I'll dust off my bartender gear and demonstrate three takes on the Negroni. You'll learn to make a classic Negroni, a Boulevardier (a whiskey Negroni), and a Quitapenas (a mezcal Negroni). Once the demonstration is over, the drinks will be available at the Yost's bar.
One dollar for each Negroni sold will go to Inspire Artistic Minds, a local 501(c)3 organization that funds continuing education for people in the visual or culinary arts.
