Tampa's Capital Grille recently announced the launch of the Cocktail Conservation Society, whose first order of business is mixing up some great cocktails to benefit four historic sites in Tampa.
The four-week lounge event will feature classic cocktails from Tampa's Golden Age as the Alhambra of the South. Featured cocktails include the mule, strawberry mojito, Pimm's cup, real dill, and rye old fashioned. Every week, a portion of the proceeds from these cocktail will be donated to a different historic Tampa site.
Proceeds benefit the Tampa Theatre (Sept. 9-15), Tampa Union Station (Sept. 16-22), The Cuban Club (Sept. 23-29), and the Italian Club (Sept. 30-Oct. 6).
"The Cocktail Conservation Society program is an innovative way to bring awareness to some of Tampa's historic gems," said the Tampa Theatre's Jill Witeckii of the project in a press release. "As a long-time Tampa institution, the Theatre is thrilled to work with partners like The Capital Grille who are looking for creative ways to give back to their community and introduce these Tampa landmarks — not to mention these classic cocktails — to a younger audience."
The Cocktail Conservation Society begins Monday, Sept. 9 and ends Sunday, Oct. 6. The Capital Grille is located at 2223 N. Westshore Blvd., Tampa, 813-830-9433.
