In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Negroni Week in Bangkok, these bars about town have come up with a whole series of new cocktails.
Negroni Week is a worldwide event, as one of the most iconic cocktails in the world is celebrated for a whole week, in order to raise money for charity. This year, in Bangkok, it’s to support the Slow Food organisation. Several hotels have jumped in to devise some super interesting drinks that bar-hoppers need to try. Here’s our pick of the mix.
