This Wrigley Field-inspired cocktail tastes of leather and grass
Virgin Hotels and Chicago Cubs pitcher Jon Lester teamed up to create a unique cocktail for baseball season, and the drink does double-duty as a charitable beverage. In an effort to raise money for NVRQT, a children’s cancer research charity created by Lester, Virgin Hotels’ mixologist created a cocktail called "Never Quit."
This was how Virgin Hotels described the drink:
That sounds like it would smell great, but it might be an acquired taste. Who knew vodka infused with leather was a thing?
Virgin Hotels Chicago is encouraging people to try the drink at The Commons Chicago before June 11. They promise to enter anyone who samples the cocktail into a raffle to win one of Lester’s gloves or tickets to a Cubs’ charity event. The company said it will also donate $1 from the sale of every "Never Quit" cocktail to charity.
