Happy Monday: Kimpton Restaurants (Various Locations)

[ 0 ] November 16, 2009 |

Happy Hour for a good cause. Each Monday we bring you “Happy Monday” which is a post dedicated to all the great happy hours. This week our HM post focuses on “Cocktails for a Cure”. In an effort to raise money for a cure to fight HIV, Kimpton Restaurants (*You know them…the Topaz, Helix and Urbana family…) will donate $1 to an HIV service organization in the community from November 1 and ending on World AIDS day (*December 1). The $1 donation will come from patrons purchasing one of the four hand-crafted cocktails (*created by Master Mixologist, Jacques Bezuidenhout) @ $9 a pop. The cocktails are the Grapefruit Spritz (*Ketel One meets Campari and grapefruit juice), Bad Apple (*Don Julio Blanco+Lillet+bitters+apple juice+ginger beer), Orange Blossom Fizz (*Belvedere Orange and friends…) and Morning Daiquiri (*Ten Cane Rum+Grand Marnier, lime juice & orange marmalade). Yum. You know how we feel about a good cause…and it doesn’t hurt that it’s accompanied by some good cocktails…
