Here’s something to drink to, W Austin is serving up the Celebration Libation, a specialty cocktail benefiting SafePlace. They’re donating half of every drink purchased between now and December 30th to the non-profit organization.
“W Austin is honored to benefit SafePlace with half of the proceeds from our signature Celebration Libation cocktail,” said General Manager Drew McQuade. “The work they do toward ending sexual and domestic violence is incredibly important, and we invite the Austin community to contribute by joining us in the Living Room through the end of December.”
Now, I’m not sure how the professionals rate cocktails. But, as a recreational cocktail taster, I give this a “Mmm, that was good!” rating followed by “Again!” For those of you not familiar with my rating scale, it’s a pretty favorable one.
A fun and flirty cocktail, it’s a sweet little thing made with the following:
- 1.5 oz Tito’s Vodka
- 1 oz Ginger Honey Syrup
- Muddle with two lemon slices and five sprigs of mint
- Topped with soda
Most of all, it’ll satisfy your thirst for supporting a good cause!
“SafePlace thanks The W Austin for boldly standing up against domestic violence and sexual assault and choosing us as the charity for this exciting one year celebration. The W is a renowned hotel and we are thrilled they are using their momentous influence in the community to bring awareness to and raise money for SafePlace,” comments SafePlace Executive Director Julia Spann.
The W Austin celebrated its first year in Austin on December 9th with cocktail and appetizer specials, a champagne toast and a disco dance party. If you didn’t make it down to The W on the 9th, don’t worry. You can still catch the celebration. TRACE and the Living Room are marking the occasion with month-long food and drink specials.
