I love a good cocktail. I also love one that I can whip up in a snap. I also love supporting the men and women of our armed services. As an Air Force wife the USO is a program that is near and dear to my heart. Which is why I just had to share with you a very easy way you can support our troops by simply clicking “like”.
BACARDI USA’s “Salute to Summer’s Best 60 Second Cocktail Program,” will be donating $1 to the USO for every new facebook fan they gain up to $100,000. That’s right. For each person who “likes” the 60 Second Cocktails facebook page Bacardi will donate one dollar. How awesome is that?
Very. Very. Very awesome!
“In honor of the program, celebrity chef John Besh and celebrity mixologist Bryan Stowe have created an exquisite new menu of cocktails and grilled dishes that utilize the delicious flavor of Bacardi products. Besh and Stowe, both former Marines, prove that cooking and mixing cocktails can be a great way to give back this summer!”
