Grab your Campari bottles because Negroni Week is back!

Raise a glass to your favourite bittersweet cocktail and celebrate Negroni Week – the Ovolo Way! At Ovolo, it is believed the trinity of one-part Campari, one-part gin, and one-part vermouth is best celebrated smoky. Transport yourself to Italy from Monday the 14th – Sunday the 20th of September, as worlds and cultures collide in celebration of Negroni Week. Just because we can’t travel, doesn’t mean that our taste buds can’t! Sip on global flavours as Fortitude Valley’s iconic ZA ZA TA Bar and Kitchen, goes ‘Up in Smoke’ with their newest negroni menu. Cheers to that! 

To get the celebration started, Ovolo bars across Australia and Hong Kong will be serving up a menu of six specialty smoked Negroni’s, each putting a spin on the much-loved Italian classic. The cocktails will be available for guests to sip and savour for just $18.
