Drink creative cocktails for a great cause

Join in the month-long cocktail fundraising campaign for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. You can drink some creative cocktails and contribute to a good cause because proceeds from these cocktails are being donated. We’ve mentioned the Avocado Grill’s special cocktail before, and now we have a list of the other participants. Also in competition are Grato, Tryst, Funky Buddha Brewery, Pistache French Bistro, Max’s Harvest, Max’s Social House, Oceana Coffee, The Cooper and Salute Market restaurant. The Social House (Lake Worth) and Earth & Sugar are offering a special dessert/cocktail pairing for the cause.

Some of the drink concoctions are: Andro Thai Daisy (Tryst, pictured) with Yaxche Tearoom chai tea infused Maestro Dobel silver tequila, Ancho Reyes chili liquer and grapefruit peel; Blood Orange Manhattan (Pistache); Cooper Cooler (The Cooper) with St. Augustine vodka, honey, orange and lemon; SOS (Sun Over Sand – Grato) with tequila, pineapple, Florida orange, mango and ginger; Social House Spritz (Social House) with prosecco, Aperol, orange juice and an orange twist.

There will be two winners—those who raise the most money—and they will compete head to head in a final round on April 14 at the Kravis Center, where Palm Beach’s Taste of the Nation takes place.

So start exploring and experimenting by tasting these innovative drinks, and know that you’re helping feed hungry children.

Sunday brunch addition: Grato starts serving March 6

Grato (1901 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 561/404-1334) has been constantly packed since opening in January. Now Sunday brunch is sure to be popular, too, starting March 6 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. On the menu are dishes such as lobster Benedict, a potato and fontina frittata, bourbon French toast and more. Top those off with a frozen Bellini or a blood orange mimosa, and your Sunday is complete.
