20+ Cocktails from 20+ Bars and Restaurants for $35

- 1 cocktail at each participating location - March 8 through May 10, 2015


Good Passports, Ladies of American Distilleries (LOAD), Lupec NYC and Boozemenus.com have teamed up to present The LOADed Cocktail Passport, which will raise funds for Bottomless Closet & Toklas Society.

In celebration of Women’s History Month, we’ve created a passport that supports products where women are an integral part of the spirit - or cocktail-making process.

By purchasing a LOADed Cocktail Passport, you’ll get one cocktail, featuring one of the participating spirits brands, at every location. Each participating location will offer you the choice of at least 1 of 2 cocktails featuring a spirit from one of the brand sponsors. Cocktails are based on 1 oz pours of liquor. Some of the sponsored liquors are meant to be poured neat and in those cases, you will be offered it as such. You can use the passport on any day, at any time from March 8 through May 10, 2015.

Participating spirits include:

When purchasing a LOADed Cocktail Passport, choose the location where you would like to pick up your passport. Passports are available for pick-up from March 8 through April 8, 2015.

How it Works:

  1. Buy a ticket for your preferred passport pick-up location.
  2. Pick up your passport at the location you chose any day from March 8 through April 8, 2015.
  3. Bring your passport to each of the 20+ participating locations any day from March 8 through May 10, 2015 and choose one cocktail from a participating brand at each location.
  4. Please remember to tip your bartenders, as gratuity is not included.
