During October, Village Tavern ,at 1 West Flatiron Crossing Drive in Broomfield, is marking the 25th anniversary of Breast Cancer Awareness Month by serving up special Hope-tini cocktails to raise money for breast cancer research.
"People are definitely interested," says John Davis, Village Tavern bar manager. "It's that time of year where there is a lot of awareness about cancer."
The restaurant is donating $2 from the sale of each Hope-tini, made with vodka, Tuaca Italian liqueur, Malibu rum, cranberry juice and cream, a combination that results in a cocktail that's the same color as the famous breast cancer awareness ribbon. (It's also available in a non-alcoholic variety.)
"If people like it, we will keep it on the menu," Davis promises. "It's kind of like a sweet caramel cranberry."
Village Tavern serves lunch Monday through Friday, dinner seven days a week and Sunday brunch -- all excellent times to support the fight against breast cancer by downing this special drink.
