Kimpton's 'Cocktails for a Cure' Raises Cash for HIV Service Orgs

Do your karma a favor -- throw back a few.
Kimpton Restaurants is donating money for each "special" cocktail purchased this month. The Cocktails for a Cure fundraiser is to benefit HIV service organizations, and is part of an ongoing, 20-year commitment by the S.F.-based hospitality chain.

It's easy to participate: Saddle up and order any of the four featured cocktails from master mixologist Jacques Bezuidenhout. A buck from each Cocktails for a Cure purchase goes to the cause (see the list of beneficiaries here). Get your drink on locally at Grand Café, Harry Denton's Starlight Room, Scala's, and others. Bezuidenhout's creations range from the Orange Blossom Fizz, a mashup of Belvedere orange, St. Germain elderflower liqueur, pineapple juice, and sparkling wine, to the more classic Grapefruit Spritzer: Ketel One Citroen with Campari, grapefruit juice, and club soda. The promotion ends Dec. 1, World AIDS day.

Prop. 8 haters, take note: Apparently, Utah is not on board. Kimpton's statement on that is terse: "Cocktails for a Cure promotion not available at Bambara in Salt Lake City, UT." What's that all about?
