Following the tragic mass shooting in Orlando, Florida, on June 12, the New York City restaurant Añejo is now offering a tribute cocktail with proceeds going to a GoFundMe campaign for the victims’ families.
The cocktail is called the Añejo Pulse, named in honor of the nightclub where the fatal shooting spree occurred. For every Añejo Pulse sold, $3 will be donated to the campaign. James Horn of Añejo created the cocktail and tells Food Republic that it just made sense for the restaurant to contribute.
“Our first thought with this cocktail and the subsequent donations was to do something to help the people suffering from the horrible events in Orlando,” Horn says. “Our two restaurants in both Hell’s Kitchen and Tribeca are in the heart of the city’s most LGBT-friendly neighborhoods, and many of our valued employees and guests are part of that community. So with this cocktail, we wanted to lend a special, public show of support for them as well.”
The $13 cocktail will be available for the rest of the month. For those who’d like to make the cocktail themselves, the recipe is below.
- 1 1/2 ounces Herradura silver tequila
- 3/4 ounce Thai basil syrup
- 1 ounce lime juice
- 3/4 ounce Market blueberry puree
