Nostrana is hosting the second annual Negroni Social on Friday, June 22nd. Over the course of the past year we’ve given special attention to a unique Negroni variation each month. The Negroni Social is a celebration of all things Negroni, featuring all twelve ‘Negronis of the Month’, as well as the quintessential classic cocktail. The restaurant will play host to the city’s finest mixologists and media during an after-hours gala to benefit Outside In.
The Rooster Bar at Nostrana is led by Bar Manager Douglas Derrick. Douglas’ strong passion for seasonality and the classic Negroni flavor profile compels him to create a new Negroni variation every month. Ingredients, glass, garnish and even ice selection are thoughtfully married utilizing mixology-grade craft and ingenuity to present cocktails that are classically Italian in their sensibilities, yet distinctly ‘ours’. The concepts for ‘Negroni of the Month’ and the ‘Negroni Social’ were co-developed with wine director Nicholas Suhor. The Oregon Bartenders Guild joins us as a partner for this event.
The event is invitation only, but those wishing to attend have an opportunity to win tickets via our friends at Eater.
