October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Most likely, you know someone who has been affected by the disease, if you haven’t been yourself. My best friend is a breast cancer survivor and last year I lost a lifelong friend after she put up a brave fight. Not a day goes by when I don’t think of her.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Patina Restaurant Group has teamed up with the Florida Breast Cancer Association. A special cocktail known as The Pink Ribbon is now available at The Edison, Enzo’s Hideaway, and Maria & Enzo’s Ristorante. The drink was created by The Edison’s own mixologist Alana Sullivan, and it is in honor of her own mother’s breast cancer triumph.
According to the official press release, “The Pink Ribbon is made with Herradura Reposado (Top Shelf Spirit), watermelon juice, lime juice, fresh muddled raspberries, and mint leaves. A mocktail version will also be available, including watermelon juice, lime juice, muddled fresh raspberries, and mint leaves.”
The Pink Ribbon is available through October 31. Part of the proceeds will go to the charitable organization. Although great strides have been made in defeating breast cancer, there is still a long way to go. One death is one too many. Something as simple as purchasing a cocktail could help researchers to find the final piece of the puzzle and wipe out this killer once and for all.
