The Challenge

For many of us, restaurants and bars — as well as the workers behind those establishments — are what make our cities a better place to live.  As restaurants across the country cut hours, suspend business, and close for good, many workers will be faced with long-term loss of income.

Make a video in which you mix your favorite drink, say a toast to those affected in the restaurant, foodservice and hospitality industry, and post it to your social media accounts using #LiftYourSpirits.  The last step is to challenge your friends to do the same and to send a gift to the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation (NRAEF) that turns a tip into a donation for restaurant, foodservice and hospitality workers impacted by the COVID-19 crisis!

For sponsorship and brand partnership opportunities, please contact Lonny Sweet

Tipping for Good

The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation is the philanthropic foundation of the National Restaurant Association, the largest restaurant and foodservice trade association in the world, representing and advocating for more than 500,000 businesses and millions of employees throughout the country.  Proceeds from #LiftYourSpirits will support the NRAEF’s restaurant, foodservice and hospitality worker relief efforts.

Because we can’t all be out tonight at our favorite restaurants or bars, I’m sharing the recipe for my super secret, favorite go-to summer cocktail “The Dizzy Bill Murray” (See recipe below)
I’m taking the tip I would be giving my waiter or bartender and turning it into a donation that supports those in the service industry who are really struggling right now. They always take care of us, so let’s take care of them by raising your spirits!
You can help by heading over to https://www.liftyourspirits.org/
then make your own video and challenge three friends...don’t forget to use the hashtag #liftyourspirits liftyourspiritschallenge
I’m challenging richardross sophieschumacher0 and frankcastleberry Cheers!
The Dizzy Bill Murray (makes 2 cocktails)
In a shaker 1/2 filled with ice, pour in 4 oz of keelvodka
Next add 2 oz fresh squeezed lime juice, 3 oz mango purée, 1 oz Sanpellegrino Lemonata sparkling lemonade, 1/2 oz each of pineapple and cranberry juice. Shake mixture well.
Pour mixture into 2 frosted cocktail glasses filled with ice. Top off with veuve clicquot Champagne and garnish with fresh mint.
Insider tip: For a little extra flare slap the mint with two hands to release the essential oils and fresh essence which enhances the Dizzy Bill Murray experience. Enjoy!

Let’s talk candle love. 🕯 How often do you trim your candle wicks? It’s ESSENTIAL that you do this every time you light a candle to 1/4 of an inch. Do not ruin your precious candles 😱 We are all stuck at home now and it can smell amazing! 🤔 jomalonelondon candles are my favorites. Also-/I change the scents in my home depending on my mood AND try different scents at the same time for the Jo Malone London fragrance combining experience. Right now when I feel like it’s #groundhogday every morning, my candles lift me.
I would love to help you find your signature Jo Malone home scent.
