Monday marks the start of the fourth annual Negroni Week, in which bars across the world break out their rendition of the classic bitter drink from June 6 to June 13 — with the proceeds going to the charity of the bar's choice. What started three years ago as a small fundraiser in Portland has now plumed into about 4,500 bars in 46 countries, according to Campari, the sponsor for the event. The result is fun, zany, and sometimes unconventional takes on what is usually a straightforward blend of equal parts gin, vermouth, and the Italian bitter Campari.
