Twin Cities Cocktail Week

Cocktails taste good, but can they do good too? Yes! We think they can! That's why we created Twin Cities Cocktail Week. TCCW is so much more than a week of special events; it's a monthlong fundraising program.  Order a Generous Spirits Cocktail from a participating restaurant, and they'll donate one dollar to a local non-profit partner. What's even better is that our friends at Proximo Spirits will match the donation dollar for dollar — That's something to raise a glass to! Read more about Twin Cities Cocktail Week
