Negroni fans who need an excuse to indulge in their favourite sip are in luck: Negroni Week has returned to Victoria this week.

34 local restaurants and bars are participating in the seven-day celebration, which started on Monday and will run until June 30th.

The tasty event mixes the delicious Italian cocktail with the spirit of generosity as participating establishments must donate to a charity of their choice to be included in the international Negroni Week venue list.

First launched in 2013, Negroni Week has grown from an initial 120 participants to almost 10,000 venues worldwide and have collectively raised approximately $2 million for charitable causes.
