The Millennium Hilton New York Downtown has launched a partnership with Polished Man, an innovative fundraising campaign that challenges men and women to paint one nail to represent the 1 in 5 children that experience violence globally.
The hotel is donating $5 from every “Polished Man Cocktail” sold through November 10th, 2017, at their swanky bar, Liquid Assets.
In addition to enjoying a delicious cocktail for a good cause, all customers receive a free bottle of JINsoon nail polish with their drink, and are encouraged to paint one fingernail and show their support as a #PolishedMan.
- 1 1/2 oz Double Cross Vodka
- 1/2 oz Peach Schnapps
- 1/2 oz Elderflower Liqueur
- 1/2 oz Simple Syrup
- 3-4 drops Blue Curacao
Preparation: Put all ingredients into a shaker filled to the top with ice and shake. Pour into chilled martini glass and garnish with lemon twist.
Cocktail inspiration: The hotel incorporated Blue Curacao to mimic the campaign’s signature blue nail polish that each guest receives with their purchase.
YGAP’s Polished Man is an innovative fundraising campaign that challenges men to paint one nail to represent the 1 in 5 children that experience violence globally. Australia-based CEO and Co-Founder of YGAP, Elliot Costello launched this powerful movement after meeting 10-year-old Thea who drew a heart in his hand and painted his fingernails in Cambodia. While a seemingly average child, Thea suffered physical and sexual abuse at the hands of a pedophile for two years while at a ‘safe house’ where she was taken after her father passed away.
