The end of October may be just around the corner, but we still have time to celebrate its most important cause: Breast Cancer Awareness. From now through Halloween, try these five Magic City must-do’s to “drink pink” in honor of those still fighting the disease, and in the process, help find a cure:
“Señorita Wednesdays” at Piripi: Through the end of this month, the Village of Merrick Park’s newest haunt, Piripi, will serve special “Tatatinis” — a mixture of Voli Vodka, Peach Schnapps, pink grapefruit juice and mint — with $1 of each sold benefitting breast cancer awareness and research. As if that wasn’t enough, Piripi’s “Señorita Wednesdays,” held all through October, invite ladies to “Drink to Pink” and celebrate breast cancer survivors and fighters. Piripi is located in the Village of Merrick Park, at 320 San Lorenzo Ave #1315. On “Señorita Wednesdays,” all ladies will get complimentary champagne from 6 PM to 8 PM.
Order a “Cheers to the Cure” at Bourbon Steak: Michael Mina has a special “Cheers to the Cure” cocktail this month, and it’s on the menu at his Turnberry Isle-based Bourbon Steak. Mixing homemade strawberry-basil purée with Maker’s Mark, Cocchi Americano and a splash of club soda — and serving it all on the rocks — mixologist Jennifer Sorrano has come up with a sweet way to support breast cancer awareness. Available for $15, $1 of each cocktail sold will benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Bourbon Steak is located inside Turnberry Isle, at 19999 W. Country Club Drive.
“Drink Pink” on the Beach: Two of Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa’s raved-about restaurants, 3030 Ocean and Sea Level, are whipping up two tasty cocktails in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. For just $15, guests can sip on 3030 Ocean’s “Pink Coconut Martini” — coconut rum, amaretto, pineapple juice, sour mix and cranberry juice — or Sea Level’s “Pinkarita”: a mix of Cruz Del Sol Silver tequila, Tres Agaves Organic Strawberry Margarita Mix with Agave Nectar, lime juice and Sierra Mist. With $1 from each drink sold going straight to charity, you can feel less guilty about ordering both. Both 3030 Ocean and Sea Level are located inside the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa, at 3030 Holiday Drive.
Head to Islamorada: This October, “clink pink” in the Florida Keys with a $6 glass of “Sparkling Pink” moscato at Amara Cay Resort’s Oltremare Ristorante. Honoring all locals who have undergone the fight against breast cancer, $1 for every glass sold will be donated to the Keys chapter of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Oltremare Ristorante is located inside Amara Cay Resort, at 80001 Overseas Highway.
When in Doubt, Drink Tequila: For just $15, head to SoFi’s Tongue & Cheek for this month’s tantalizing “T & A (Tequila & Awareness)” cocktail. Whipped up by mixologist Maxwell Parise, this sexy sipper is made of egg whites, lime, Pama Pomegranate liquor, Cream, Casamigos Reposado Tequila, Casamigos Blanco Tequila, club soda and “Pink Ribbon” ice made of pomegranate liquor gelee. The added punch? $1 from each cocktail will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Tongue & Cheek is located at 431 Washington Avenue.
