Mezcaal Negroni Inspired by Joe Valdovinos

Negroni Week is upon us!

Bars and restaurants across the country have pledged to take part in massive charity event formed by the Campari Group and Imbibe Magazine.

Those of us participating are donating $1 for every negroni we sell to the charity of our choice during the first week of June (2nd-8th).

  My home base, Pizzeria Ortica is donating all proceeds to the American Diabetes Association Family Retreat program. This cause is near to my heart since my little sister Stacy was diagnosed with diabetes when she was very young.

She’s been a catalyst of inner strength for me. Growing up with diabetes is no joke. Come help out by drinking negronis at Pizzeria Ortica this week.


We are featuring a myriad of Negroni variations for you to try… including the Joaniegroni, which I developed for my friend the Italian Wine Geek, Joanie Karapetian.

1 oz Nolets Gin
1 oz Giffard Pamplemousse Rose
1 oz Tempus Fugit Kina L’avion D’or
