Shake, Stir & Strainbow!, an annual fundraising campaign featuring Pride-themed cocktails, is back from August 5 to 23. This year, there are nearly 70 different drinks to choose from, including Proof’s Emerald City cocktail. Try as many of them as you can because at least $1 from each featured cocktail sold will support Skipping Stone Foundation.

Summer in Paradise – Pink “Bonbon” Iced Latte from Sought x Found Coffee Roasters
