A Drink For You: The Mocktail Project
It’s hard to believe that we are just seven days away from our second annual charity social, “A Drink For You.”
What should you expect on March 12? A Drink For You is a night were cocktails & mocktails will co-exist. A social space where you will enjoy great food, live music, and drinks that can be enjoyed either with or without alcohol. Our program will include a food networks “chopped” winner, Joshua Moore, the incredible talented Chef Bobby Benjamin, and a Louisville favorite, Allan Rosenberg all serving delicious bites for you enjoyment.
For Mocktails, Ale-8-One, RE’AL Mixers, Clear/Cut Phocus, and the Beer Syrup Company has created signature recipes that you can enjoy in the Frazier History’s Speakeasy Lounges.
For Cocktails, Castle & Key, Coopers Craft, Heaven Hill, Old-Forester, and Rabbit Hole Distillery will each serve a signature cocktail as you explore your way through the Frazier.
The highlight of our event, our second annual mocktail competition. I’m honestly stoked to see so much talent competing against one another in this years event. We will boast a Top Chef Presenter, Nic Christiansen, the Beverage Director of Butchertown Grocery, and three National Brand Representatives from local distilleries, Coopers Craft, Copper & Kings, and Rabbit Hole Distillery.

Please join me for “A Drink For You”, the Mocktail Project’s second annual charity event. All will feel included in this event space, which features music, cocktails and mocktails, food from local chefs, and a live mocktail competition!
“Everyone deserves the option to enjoy a crafted beverage, whether they choose to consume alcohol or not,” said The Mocktail Project’s founder, Jesse Hawkins. “’A Drink For You’ is designed to move beyond a traditional fundraising model and engage the community in eliminating social barriers.”
Funds raised during the evening will support local recovery efforts and provide access to high-quality, non-alcoholic drink options in Kentucky’s most vibrant social settings.
Auctioneer Bill Menish of SVN Premier will emcee the evening and guide guests through the event. Otis Junior & The Jesse Lee’s will perform live during our cocktail & mocktail happy hour. A special thanks to our guest judges who will judge our competition live, Bourbon Women's Association very own Cocktail Contessa, Heather Wibbels, Lifestyle and Food Blogger, J.C Phelps, local lifestyle blogger and Kentucky gent, Josh Johnson, and Master Distiller of Caste & Key, Marianne Eaves.
Won’t you join me on March 12th at the Frazier History Museum? I’d love to see all y’all!
