Negroni Week at Coltivare

  • Cotivare 3320 White Oak Drive Houston, TX 70007 USA (map)

Negroni Week launched in 2013 by Imbibe and Campari as a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails and an effort to raise money for charities around the world. 

We'll be serving four special Negronis to benefit No Kid Hungry.

Tilde's Tonic
Gin Mare, Strawberry-Infused Blend of Vermouths, Zucca Rabarbaro, Orange Flower Water

Bar manager Julie Rogers says this Negroni "drinks like a strawberry rhubarb pie and a negroni had a kid."

While working in a shop, Carlo Zucca found a recipe in their cash till written by his predecessor's wife, named Tilde, for a tonic of rhubarb and other herbs recommended to her by her doctor for her poor digestion. Carlo added a few of his own touches, fortified the herbal blend up to 30%, and thus, Zucca Rarbarbaro was born.

An Americano In Tokyo
Suntory Toki Japanese Whiskey, Cocchi Rosa, Gran Classico, Soda, Orange

The name of this cocktail was inspired by An American In Paris, and the cocktail combines the two cultures of the Italian apertif cocktail, the American and the wildly popular Japanese Highball.

Kitty Burke Shake
Lillet Rose, Citadelle Gin, Aperol, Lemon, Hibiscus, Egg

Named for a burlesque dancer from the 1930s named Kitty Burke who was heckling batters behind home plate at a baseball game and, as a result of one particular batter who, out of frustration challenged her to show him that she could do it better, became the first woman to bat in a major league baseball game. 

Apocalypse When?
Jensen Old Tom Gin, Capertif, Campari, Vallet Fernet, Salt, Peach

Dark, boozy, weird, fruity, herbaceous, complex, dry, woodsy - all the things. This was a cocktail from a previous menu, and we brought it back because we love it so much. The drink is black and bitter.
