This is such a great time of year for enjoying a good cocktail. So many places are doing everything they can to embrace the fall weather, festivals and upcoming holidays. Additionally, during the month of October, many bartenders are creating drinks in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here are a few pink drinks to check out.
Tujague’s (429 Decatur) will showcase the Pink Lady ($14) – gin, grenadine, and egg white. For every Pink Lady sold during the month of October, $1 will be donated to Krewe de Pink to help support local Breast Cancer research.
Toups Meatery (845 Carrollton) will feature the Sally Fields Forever cocktail created by Head Bartender Kenny Watson. Available for $13, the specialty cocktail features a smooth blend of Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka, strawberry shrub, ginger syrup, orange blossom water and lemon juice. Five dollars of each drink sold will go to the Louisiana Hospitality Foundation with money earmarked for women in the hospitality business who are battling breast cancer.
The Bower (1320 Magazine) is honoring all women with the Bower Sour ($14) – a blend of bourbon, house made hibiscus syrup, house made sour, and aquafaba – created by Beverage Director Mickey Mullins. For every Bower Sour sold during the month of October, $1 will be donated to Krewe de Pink to help support local breast cancer research.
Mister Mao (4501 Tchoupitoulas) is going pick for a personal reason. Chef/owner Sophina Uong recently lost her mother to breast cancer. In honor of her mom and other cancer fighters, Chef Uong has created the Lina’s Donuts ($12) – cachaca, fresh lime juice, turbinado simple syrup, red beet puree, served on the rocks and garnished with slices of serrano pepper. Mister Mao will donate $2 from each drink to Krewe de Pink.
