LAS VEGAS – OM Liqueurs, a premier line of certified organic sugarcane spirit-based liqueurs, has announced their partnership with Hakkasan Group to benefit Keep Memory Alive in honor of Alzheimer's Awareness Month (November).
"OM Liqueurs is thrilled to be partnering with Hakkasan Group for this important cause. Our brand has always been aligned with the spirit of giving back, and November is the perfect time to support Keep Memory Alive whose work helps to provide research and treatment for neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's," said Natalie Bovis, Co-founder/CMO of OM Liqueurs.
"My father has Alzheimer's disease, and so when I left the Lou Ruvo/Keep Memory Alive dinner in Las Vegas last year, I was inspired to do something in my industry to raise money and bring further awareness to the cause during Alzheimer's month. I approached Hakkasan Group with this idea of creating a cocktail at their restaurants where we could donate one dollar per drink sold to the very important work that's being done at the Cleveland Clinic in Las Vegas, and they were on board," said Jason Monkarsh, Co-founder/CEO of OM Liqueurs.
During the month of November, for every OM Liqueurs cocktail purchased from select Hakkasan Group locations in Las Vegas, one dollar will be donated to Keep Memory Alive. These signature cocktails were created by Hakkasan chief mixologist, Tim Weigel, specifically for this worthy cause.
"We are so excited for this partnership with OM Liqueurs and Keep Memory Alive. Having the opportunity to create such unique cocktails for a great cause has been truly rewarding, and we are happy to be able to do our part in supporting Alzheimer's Awareness Month," said Tim Weigel, chief mixologist of Hakkasan Group.
The cocktails feature two of OM Liqueurs' signature flavors which include: Cranberry & Blood Orange; Coconut & Lychee; Meyer Lemon & Ginger; Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt. Signature recipes are available at the following locations:
Hakkasan Las Vegas Restaurant: Banyan Bliss $15 OM Coconut & Lychee liqueur, Bombay Sapphire East gin, yuzu, Calpico, mint, creole bitters, guava juice.
Searsucker Las Vegas: Blueberry Palmer $12 OM Meyer Lemon & Ginger liqueur, Grey Goose vodka, lemon juice, blueberry honey syrup, tea.
