Starting the New Year off right, Leyenda in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn is serving up charity cocktails to continue the female empowerment movement and support women’s issues. During the entire month of January, Julie Reiner, Ivy Mix and their bar team are will feature a new charity cocktail for $10 each week with 50% of the proceeds going directly to organizations that aid women’s health, professional and personal success.
Also if you cleaned out your closet for the New Year or got holiday gifts that you didn’t exactly love, a drop-off box will be located at the bar for the whole month where guests can drop off clothing donations that will go to Bottomless Closet.
So head to Leyenda this month to drink for good and support girl power with these charity cocktails. And don’t worry, if you are doing Dry January, you can order up a (non-alcoholic) Lemonade ($3) homage to the Queen Bey that serves up 100% of the proceeds to Women For Women International providing support to women from war torn countries.
