What's better than cocktailing for personal pleasure?  Cocktails for a cause!

My friend and neighbor is the founder of Corrigan Care, a special needs childcare center here in Atlanta.  Her story is nothing short of touching and inspiring.  I had the pleasure of meeting her daughter Emmy once, when she was only six months old.  Even at such a young age, she was charming and captivating.  She truly had the smile of an angel!

Each year, Corrigan Care hosts "Emmy's Bash", a fundraising event that also honors the exuberance of Emmy herself.  It's happening this Saturday here in metro Atlanta and Amy, the founder and CEO of Corrigan Care, asked if I would create two signature cocktails for the event.  I jumped on the opportunity and embraced the center's pink and green signature colors as a starting point for these cocktails.

I hope you'll give them a try and toast to the beautiful life of little Emmy and the dedication of her fearless mother.  Cheers to Corrigan Care!
