12 Days of Giving to Benefit 12 Different Charities at 1 Hotel South Beach

12 days of giving cocktails

Cocktails for a cause are our favorite kind of cocktails here at MIAbites and this holiday season 1 Hotel South Beach is hosting a way for us to do exactly that. 1 Hotel South Beach is set to celebrate the festive season with 12 Days of Giving. The hotel, alongside Beverage Director Charles Stedman, has created a 12 Days of Cocktails program where proceeds from 12 specialty cocktails will go to 12 local charities.

From December 21st to January 1st, at the hotel’s Lobby Bar, & Habitat restaurant, guests will be able to enjoy a new specialty cocktail each day with proceeds going directly toward a corresponding charity for each cocktail purchased. Each cocktail will be priced at $15 and has been created with the charity in mind and tailored to match the organization’s platform theme.

Additionally, 1% of the hotel’s total daily revenue will be contributed to that day’s charitable organization for the duration of the holiday programming.
