We love The Classic Cosmopolitan cocktail and Cointreau and the Independent Restaurant Coalition are partnering up to save local restaurants and bars with every order of a Cosmopolitan. From October 15th through December 31st, Cointreau will donate up to $100,000 for every order of a Cosmopolitan at participating restaurants or Instagram post tagging at participating restaurants or Instagram post tagging #CosmosForACause and @Cointreau_US to the Independent Restaurant Coalition.
In 2020, more than 90,000 restaurants permanently closed due to the pandemic. Now, about a year and a half into the COVID-19 crisis, nearly one million restaurant workers remain unemployed, and the increased cost of goods are continuing to cut into restaurants’ profitability.
Through this program, Cointreau, the IRC and RDNC will join forces to continue to support and rebuild the industry.Consumers will be able to participate by using the Cosmopolitan Heat Map debuting at www.CointreauCosmosForACause.com today, to visit one of the over 1,200 participating bars and restaurants nationwide and by tagging #Cosmosforacause and @cointreau_us in their Instagram posts.
“We are proud to once again partner with IRC in support of our local and independent restaurants and excited to welcome RNDC to the program,” said Ian McLernon, President and CEO of Rémy Cointreau Americas. “Local bars and restaurants are part of the fabric that makes up our much-loved communities. As such, Remy Cointreau is honored and committed to helping support the people behind them as best as we can.”
