The third annual Pride-themed cocktail campaign Shake, Stir and Strainbow fundraiser will see 50 Alberta restaurants mixing drinks to help raise both funds and awareness for the Skipping Stone Foundation.
Participating restaurants and bars include Donna Mac, Civic Tavern, Vendome, Proof, Annabelle’ Kitchen, Ten Foot Henry, Alumni and Bridgette Bar (Calgary), Cartago, Meat and Central Social House (Edmonton) as well as Canmore’s Tapas Restaurant.
All establishments have created unique cocktails–many of which draw inspiration from Pride season in general–using spirits from the Remy Cointreau portfolio that will be on feature from Friday, Aug. 7 until Friday, Aug. 28. A minimum of $1 from the sale of each feature cocktail will be donated to the Alberta-wide charity, Skipping Stone, which focuses on supporting trans youth through a variety of development programs, mental health support systems and more.
The campaign has set a fundraising target of $2,000 over the next three weeks and are hoping to surpass that goal once the cheers-worthy initiative wraps up on August 28.
