Bar10’s Call Me Caitlyn Cocktail Features Gin, Lillet, and a Philanthropic Twist

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation

The finale of the E! reality show I Am Cait starring Caitlyn Jenner airs this Sunday at 8 p.m PST. In honor of the historical television series and its star, West Hollywood’s Bar10 didn’t just create an “Call Me Caitlyn” cocktail, but it will donate $1 from every one of its sales to GLAAD. For anyone who’s unfamiliar, where have you been? Sixty-five-year-old Jenner came out as transgender earlier this year on a Vanity Fair cover. Thanks to her celebrity, she’s credited with bringing attention to the transgender community and was honored with an Arthur Ashe Courage Award during the 2015 ESPYs.

Bar10’s Call Me Caitlyn cocktail ($10) is a refreshing mix of Boodles Gin, Lillet, grapefruit juice, honey, lime, and mint. “While being a trailblazer for the community, Caitlyn’s beauty and grace is timeless,” says Bar10 owner Daniel Cammarata. “We were inspired by her transcendent qualities to use Lillet, a classic cordial, to create something that we think everyone would enjoy. We added a perfect balance of strong (gin), sweet (honey) and tart (lime). We feel that this is what Caitlyn embodies—she is both multidimensional and refreshing.”

Earlier this week, Jenner appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show and shared her thoughts with the host, conveying she still had “a judgment against gay marriage,” according to Degeneres on Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show. She’s a Republican and an admitted traditionalist but followed that up with saying how she wouldn’t stand in anyone’s way of anyone’s happiness.

The charity cocktail at Bar10 is available from now through Sunday night. “There is still much work to do to support and protect the LGBT community,” says Cammarata. “We wanted to do something that would provide financial support to GLAAD so that they can continue to help shine a light on these important issues and help educate and inform the public all the while breaking down barriers.”
