The Shake Up

To celebrate the countdown to Boston’s Taste of the Nation, we are launching the first annual Shake Up: a four-week cocktail competition where Boston’s top bars compete to be crowned cocktail champions!

Each participating bar will feature a signature No Kid Hungry cocktail on their menu for the entirety of May. A portion of each cocktail purchased will be donated to Boston’s Taste of the Nation for No Kid Hungry. The restaurant who has raised the most by the end of May will be featured at Boston’s Taste of the Nation with a premier set-up alongside our Shake Up sponsor Hotaling & Co.

Support Boston’s Taste of the Nation and purchase a No Kid Hungry cocktail from one of our participating restaurants in the month of May:
