This week, you can drink in the metro Detroit area for a good cause.

Campari, Imbibe Magazine, and the United States Bartenders Guild have partnered with local bars for "Negroni Week." June 6-12, you can order a Negroni (Campari, gin, and vermouth) or other Campari cocktails from participating bars and $1 will be donated to the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy.



The first Negroni Week was in 2013, and it launched as “a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charitable causes around the world,” according to its website. In 2015, Negroni Week raised $321,000 around the country.
