Raise Your Spirits with PINK Drinks for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) and Hard Rock’s 15th annual PINKTOBER campaign, Hard Rock Cafe locations worldwide are “raising the bar” for a cause that affects millions of people around the globe. Throughout September and October, Hard Rock is serving up sweet support with limited-time food and beverage offerings that benefit research and awareness-driving efforts for various breast cancer charities, and we would love for you to consider sharing Hard Rock’s PINK menu items with your readers.

Giving back never tasted so good as Hard Rock offers its new “Flight for a Cure” – guests can enjoy a sampling of Hard Rock’s pink margaritas (Monin Wildberry, Finest Call Watermelon and Monin Pomegranate) accompanied by a personal sized portion of PINK tortilla chips and pico de gallo.

Whether you’re hosting a fundraising event, celebrating the completion of a support walk, or simply looking to enjoy a meal that gives back, we would love your help to continue spreading awareness of Hard Rock’s PINK menu items for PINKTOBER:
  • Red Berry Press – a delicious fruit-infused cocktail pressed tableside and great for sharing! Includes homemade lemonade, SVEDKA Clementine Vodka,fresh lemons, strawberries and raspberries
  • Wildberry Smoothie – a non-alcoholic blend of fresh bananas, pina colada mix, orange juice and Monin Wildberry
  • Red Velvet Cake – Hard Rock’s PINKTOBER cake for the cure is a decadent red velvet cake topped with homemade vanilla cream cheese frosting and finished with a pink sprinkle ribbon
