October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and many of our hotels are participating in initiatives to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research. If you are familiar with Sonesta Hotels you know that we love to eat, and our hotels feature memorable dishes and drinks with our #foodisart and #liquidart concepts. Several of our hotels are celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month with food and drink specials that taste delicious, highlight the cause, and most importantly, give back to local organizations.
Eat & Drink Pink this month for #BreastCancerAwareness with pink specialty cocktails & desserts in ARTBAR! Proceeds go to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, an organization that helps women who have been diagnosed throughout their treatment and recovery.
Choose from Prickly Pear Creme Brûlée or Strawberry and Pistachio Mousse with Charred Strawberries & Pistachio Dirt. . . or try them both!
Specialty cocktails for Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Sonesta Philly include these three pretty-in-pink drinks:
The Sparkling Berry- Chambord Liqueur, Champagne, Strawberry
Pink Rum- White Rum, Bitters, Cranberry, Soda, Lemon
Pink Velvet Martini- Vanilla Vodka, White Godiva Liqueur, Grenadine, Strawberry
