Salty Sow Specialty Drink During Breast Cancer Awareness Month
As I am sure that you all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. What you may not know is that I have had, to date, three cases of breast cancer in my family, all of which resulted in the loss of amazing women. And that’s just in my family. I have countless friends, former co-workers and loved ones that have been ravaged by the disease. As a former Benefits Coordinator, I had the unfortunate position of being the point person that coordinated leaves for employees that were diagnosed with this devastating disease. I shed many tears while talking these women through their feelings and status, all instances took me back to my family members, reliving the very moment that I received the call.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual international campaign, organized by major breast cancer charities, to increase awareness as well as to raise for essential research. The campaign also served as a reminder to be self-aware, teaching the tools and techniques for early detection. As someone who has experienced the pain and suffering of this disease, by losing some of the most influential and precious women in my life, I want to be a champion for the cause all throughout the month of October, providing you with tips on where you can visit to help the cause.
The first location in the series is Salty Sow. This American gastropub will be serving up a specialty “Pink Drink”, their house Blanche Margarita for only $5. The specialty drink is made up of gold tequila, triple sec, margarita mix and blood orange puree. The cocktail is serving as a reminder of the importance of self-awareness and all that entails.
