Drink Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

We all know that come October the costumes, candy and horror movies make appearances but this month is not all about black and orange. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so think pink!

Join in the movement to help raise awareness and funds for breast cancer by shaking up some pink drinks. You may want to consider running a Pink Promotion where a percentage of every pink cocktail sold goes to breast cancer research. You’ll certainly drive more female business into your bar, so again, think pink and serve some of these cocktails at your bar in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
