Since launching in 2013, Negroni Week has grown into a worldwide week of negroni specials to raise money for various charities.
Whether serving up a classic take on the Campari-vermouth-gin recipe, or adding their own twist, last year saw bars across the world combine to raise US$537,439 for charitable causes.
This year the celebration of the bittersweet three-ingredient cocktail will take place on Jun 4-10, with some of Bangkok's bars getting in on the action.
See below for some of the special drinks on offer and remember to drink up (responsibly, of course)—a portion of every negroni you buy goes to a good cause.
