The Negroni Week menu boasts five variations on the classic, including a Boulevardier featuring the Official Bourbon of Negroni Week, Coopers’ Craft Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Additionally, on Wednesday, September 14, Rex at The Royal will host an exclusive Negroni Hour, where guests can sip on five cocktails paired with light hors d’oeuvres courtesy of Executive Chef Aaron Paik.
Rex at The Royal will be crafting cocktails for a cause during Negroni Week with hundreds of other restaurants and bars worldwide to support Imbibeand Campari in raising money for this year’s giving partner, Slow Food. This global organization promotes local food and traditional cooking. Slow Food represents the ethos of Negroni Week, as it aims to cultivate community, foster equity, and justice, and seek a better world for all through food and beverage. To date, Negroni Week’s fundraising totals over $3 million.
Folks can indulge in a special Negroni Menu in honor of Negroni Week in the sprawling dining area or seated at the bar. A featured spirit showcased on Rex’s Negroni Week menu is Cooper’s Craft Bourbon, the official Bourbon of Negroni Week 2022, used in the Boulevardier.
