Have your cocktail and drink it too

There might be less money to spend on merriment this year, but there are still ways to both indulge and help.

Kimpton Hotels has launched its annual Red Ribbon Campaign for HIV/AIDS. All of its DC-area locations (Bar Rouge, Domaso, Firefly, Helix Lounge, Jackson 20, Poste, The Grille at Morrison House, Topaz Bar, and Urbana) will feature “Cocktails for a Cure” a trio of themed cocktails available in November and December. Each drink is $12 and for every one purchased in November and December, Kimpton will donate $1 to the Whitman Walker Clinc.

Rouge on the Rocks
Milagro Blanco Tequila, Grand Marnier, raspberries and mint

Scarlet Night
Bacardi Rum, Campari and white peach puree

Ruby Sparkle
Grey Goose Vodka, Grand Marnier, pomegranate juice and sparkling wine

Rouge on the rocks is an interesting take on a winterized margarita and the Ruby Sparkle is everything a holiday cocktail ought to be - jewel-toned and sparkling.
