ST. PETERSBURG™ VODKA TO FEATURE NEW SIGNATURE COCKTAIL — THE ‘HERMITAGE’ AT PRIVATE JEWEL CONCERT TO BENEFIT PROMISE2KIDS ON JULY 20
SAN DIEGO — (July 16, 2009) — St. Petersburg™ Vodka, the “Taste of Russia®, will feature its signature cocktail, the “Hermitage,” at the Promises2Kids’ first fundraising event of the year, Jewel — A Private Concert to Benefit Promises2Kids, on Monday, July 20 at the Estate of Joan Waitt, Honorary Chair, in La Jolla, California. Proceeds from the outdoor event will fund programs at Promises2Kids, a San Diego non-profit formerly known as the Child Abuse Prevention Foundation.
The “Hermitage” will be served at both the VIP reception and to welcome guests at the main gathering. Named after the world-class St. Petersburg museum, the Hermitage cocktail combines the smoothness of St. Petersburg™ Vodka with the richness of strawberries, a light touch of citrus, and the tingling effervescence of sparkling wine.
