I created this cocktail as part of the 2021 Ketel One Hive initiative, which challenged bartenders to develop a cocktail that benefitted their community.
My response was to create Raise a Glass. This initiative works to raise awareness and support for Homeward Trust and Find, two organizations that work to help those in Edmonton who are experiencing homelessness. They move these individuals into safe, sustainable housing, and offer them the support to stay housed.
Raise a Glass is based around the sourcing of vintage glassware from Find, Homeward Trust’s social enterprise, and pairing it with the bottled Kickstarter Martini. This bottled cocktail is then offered for sale at venues across Edmonton. 100% of the sales of Kickstart Martinis go directly to Homeward Trust and Find.
