Negroni Week is back. If you’re like us, you’ve been enjoying the refreshingly balanced Italian cocktail all year, but between June 5 and 11, you can savor it for a cause.

Negroni Week launched in 2013 as an effort to raise money for charities around the world and has grown from about 100 participating venues to 6,000 bars, restaurants and other spots around the world—raising nearly $900,000 for charitable causes. There are many Las Vegas hot spots participating this year with various charity partners, but we’ve got our eyes set on Rx Boiler Room, where in addition to a classic Negroni made with Bombay Sapphire gin, this bar is featuring two new creations.

The Bastoni Pancia blends Haymans Old Tom gin with Amaro Strega, grapefruit bitters, prosecco and Campari reduction, while the Granachier combines Campari with Pierre Ferrand Dry Curacao, Old Forrester bourbon and garnacha, garnished with blackberry and orange.

Located above RM Seafood, Rx Boiler Room is known for innovative flavors. Negroni Week will be no different. Rx Boiler Room at the Shoppes at Mandalay Bay, 702-632-7200; daily 5-11 p.m.
