On Tuesday 18th September, Cool Earth and guests celebrated a new partnership with Lima Floral in Covent Garden.
The evening saw ambassadors, businesses, staff and smart supporters, gather at the newly opened cocktail bar: The Lost Alpaca. Cool Earth patron Dame Vivienne Westwood and ambassadors Leah Wood, Kelly Hoppen MBE, Daniel Lismore, Julie Montagu and Jasmine Hemsley enjoyed VIDA cocktails and Peruvian canapes throughout the evening.
VIDA1 is the bar’s new cocktail, made with Cartavio black rum, lucuma and citrus puree, egg white, fresh lime and sugar syrup, and 20% of the proceeds from each cocktail sold will go directly to Cool Earth.
Gabriel Gonzalez co-managing director of Lima Floral said: “We are so excited about the collaboration with Cool Earth. Being a Peruvian restaurant, trying to halt rainforest destruction in Peru is so important to us and Cool Earth lead the way in making a difference.
The rainforest in Peru is one of the main ecosystems there, and where a lot of our ingredients come from in the dishes we create here at Lima, so it is vital we ensure that it can thrive. In addition to this, there are such wonderful communities based in the Peruvian rainforest that deserve to remain in their homes. By creating our VIDA cocktail with Cool Earth, we know that all the proceeds will go towards making a huge difference and we can’t wait for other future collaborations.”
