Boozy Ice Cream & Slushies Are Here Just In Time For Negroni Week 2018
For all of my fellow Negroni fans out there, the tastiest week of the year is upon us. That's right: I'm talking about Negroni Week 2018, which lasts from June 4 to June 10. This annual celebration of the Italian cocktail began back in 2013 to raise funds for charities across the globe. For the sixth year, Imbibe magazine is teaming up with Campari to bring fun Negroni cocktails and treats to bars and restaurants throughout the world. This means boozy ice cream, slushies, and more are here exclusively for the celebration.
You had me at sugar and booze, so you can count me in for any of these six Negroni-flavored desserts. Plus, you'll be donating to a great cause before you take a delicious sip and bite (if you're 21 or older).
According to NegroniWeek.com, since its launch, the celebratory week has brought in around $1.5 million for incredible causes. Not only will you be adding to that impressive number, but you'll be stepping up your social media game with any of these totally Insta-worthy treats. Don't forget to use #NegroniWeek for all of the slushies and sundaes you get your hands on, and say, "Sip, sip, hooray," to another happy Negroni Week.
