Restaurant: The Union

Bartender: Kristi-Leigh Akister.

Cocktail Name: Lady Amalthela

Price: $13 ($5 donation)

Description: The cocktail was created in the spirit of celebrating uniqueness within the queer community. It begins with a bright tequila and lemon aroma with a hint of floral undertones. As the drink is consumed, the Creme de Violette slowly underscores the effervescence of the bubbles and lemon, bringing a beautiful violette finish upon completion. Much like the journey to acceptance of oneself, the drink begins one way, and finishes another.
