Cocktail at DTLV bar to benefit nonprofit 'humanizing the homeless'

Cheapshot Showroom & Discotheque/Facebook

Downtown Las Vegas bar Cheapshot is offering a cocktail to benefit local nonprofit Caridad this holiday season.

Starting Nov. 20, a portion of the proceeds of the cocktail called A Fresh Start ($15) help Caridad and their mission of humanizing the homeless. The promotion runs through the end of the year.

Bar manager Carly Presher said in a media release they work and live downtown, and wanted to "take care of our brothers and sisters in the community."

“This is a fun and delicious way to bring the downtown community together for a good cause," wrote Meredith Spriggs, the chief kindness officer of Caridad. The nonprofit uses gardening to reintegrate formerly homeless veterans back into the workforce.

The cocktail is made with Casamigos Blanco tequila, vanilla syrup, lime and lemon juice, passionfruit and cinnamon, "shaken over ice to create a spicy, tart and sweet apple pie cocktail."

Cheapshot, on Fremont East, is home to variety show Miss Behave's Mavericks, which was featured on KNPR's State of Nevada earlier this year. The show is going on hiatus after its show on Nov. 26, but Cheapshot will remain open as a bar, piano bar and nightclub.
