We love a good drink-related theme week or national holiday, especially when it’s tied to a good cause, like Negroni Week, which is currently being celebrated around the world through June 11. Every participating bar donates a portion of proceeds to a charity of its choosing, and there are dozens of establishments taking part in NYC.

We scoured the list to find our favorites and unearth the seven best Negroni cocktails and specials through the weekend. If you can’t make it out, create one of the recipes at home, and donate to your favorite charity online.
