CinCin Ristorante Gives Back To The Community During “Negroni Week”


CinCin Ristorante Gives Back To The Community During “Negroni Week”

Vancouver, B.C. (May 29, 2014) – From June 2nd to 8th, CinCin Ristorante and Bar revisits its Italian roots with “Negroni Week” – an international celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails – and is one of only five venues participating in British Columbia. Restaurants and bars around the globe, from Romania to South Africa, will donate proceeds from their Negroni sales to a local charity during this time.

“Negroni Week is an opportunity for restaurants and bars around the world to unite with a common love of this classic cocktail, but also to give back to the community,” says Adaina Smyth, CinCin bar manager. “Since 2006, the BC Hospitality Foundation has provided a financial safety net that helps to support ill and injured food, beverage, and hospitality industry members in British Columbia, when they need it most. We are honoured to be able to support the BCHF by donating the proceeds of our Negroni Week sales to this important cause.”

In keeping with the spirit of community, the CinCin Bar team – led by Smyth – have collaborated to create a specialty menu of six new Negroni cocktails in addition to its signature CinCin Negroni. Smyth recommends guests try the Negroni Amante, which features locally-produced Long Table Gin, Campari, Pedro Ximenez Sherry and Prosecco for a light summer cocktail, or for a traditional Italian taste, the Tocco Italiano with Beniamino Moscato Grappa, Campari, and Martini Bianco. The full Negroni menu can be found online here.

Negroni Week, presented by Imbibe and Campari, is inspired in part by Douglas Derrick’s Negroni Social event at Nostrana in Portland, Oregon, and also by a collective love of the Negroni and giving back to the community. Imbibe launched Negroni Week as a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charitable causes around the world. From June 2-8, 2014, bars around the world will be mixing up their favorite Negroni variations and donating a portion of proceeds from each one sold to a charity of their choice.
