October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month is here and Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar is once again helping to raise funds with a 99-calorie cocktail,
The Stiletto (recipe below), for just $6 with all proceeds benefiting The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade.
As part of this month’s signature cocktail during the daily 5 for $6 til 7 (with five appetizers, five cocktails and five wines for $6 until 7 PM), the rose-hued Stiletto highlights how Fleming’s and its guests can easily and deliciously support The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade.
Fleming’s has also added Cline Cashmere, a Napa Valley Rhône-style red, to the “5 for $6 ‘til 7” bar menu. Cashmere is a flavorful, smooth blend with big cherry, raspberry and chocolate notes, and hints of cracked black pepper and plum. The winery behind this generous red is the equally generous Cline Cellars. Each year, they donate $25,000 to Living Beyond Breast Cancer.
