When October arrives, everyone starts to “think pink” in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Tommy Bahama is no exception and is featuring the refreshing, blush colored Hibiscus Lime Cooler in the month of October at all 13 US restaurant and bars. With every purchase of the cocktail, Tommy Bahama will donate $2 to the Garden of Hope & Courage which was built as a sanctuary for all those affected by cancer. There are, unfortunately, a lot of people who are affected by cancer, but at least this event can give them a little bit of hope, a little bit of positivity in their life. A lot of the times they will be spending their times worrying about what will happen next, should they be looking at a critical illness insurance quote online in case they can’t work, there is a lot that will be worrying them.
The Hibiscus Lime Cooler looks “pretty in pink,” but also packs a punch using a creative combination of ingredients. Fresh lime juice and pineapple juice mix with vodka and Cointreau, but it’s the addition of Hibiscus syrup that makes this cocktail uniquely Tommy Bahama. Served in a Collins glass over ice, this tall cocktail tastes as good as it looks.
The Tommy Bahama approach to life captures the essence of a casual, stress free existence which offers an escape — if only for a moment — and the Garden of Hope & Courage does just that. Located on the Downtown Naples Hospital Campus of the NCH Healthcare System in Florida, the Garden of Hope & Courage is a peaceful garden that provides a respite from the sterile hospital setting – a place of tranquility and solace for cancer patients, their families and health care providers to have a moment of peace, solitude and beauty. It serves as a living testament to those who have faced and those whose lives have been touched by cancer as well.
Support the Garden of Hope & Courage, breast cancer awareness and take some time to relax with the Hibiscus Lime Cooler.
