From time to time, we make our way around town looking for a new adult beverage to try.
We then write about it, hoping to be the first ones to tell you all about it.
Whether you make your way down to the local watering hole for a taste is up to you.
But this is a little different, because to be honest, we haven’t tried any of the five drinks included in this year’s Cocktails for a Cause, yet we’re going to urge you to go and try them all – in the name of a good cause.
This is the second year that the Crisis Center of Central New Hampshire has enlisted the help of local restaurants, bars and breweries to help generate a little extra dough for the nonprofit. Last year, four took part, raising about $1,000 and now the number is up to five.
And it’s pretty simple: if you’re going out for an afterwork drink, dinner and drinks or a night on the town, stop by one of the spots we’re about to list and buy the specialty drink. When you purchase the selected drink, 20 percent of the cost will be donated to CCCNH for Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Who knew that enjoying a cocktail could be so fulfilling?
So when you go to these establishments, order the specialty drink and let the money add up.
The drink selection includes:
Cheers: Prickly Pear Margarita
Barley House: Mighty Black Berry
The Granite Restaurant and Bar: Cucumber Martini for a Cause
O Steak: Spicy Pineapple Upside Down Martini
Lithermans Limited: Hall & Oats Pale Ale
You can then judge the drinks on – creativity, taste, appearance, and the staff’s knowledge of the Crisis Center.
There will be awards at this year’s Walk A Mile in Her Shoes event for most sold and best drink.
So send your ballot to Karen, PO Box 1344, Concord, NH 03301 or take a picture of it and email to Karen@cccnh.org
