PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A number of Philadelphia restaurants are teaming up with a local gin distillery to sell cocktails for cancer.

The month-long effort features cocktails centered on the Philly-based Bluecoat American Dry Gin.

Creations include the Watermelon Gin Ricky, a drink made with gin, lime, watermelon, basil simple syrup and soda that’s being sold at South Philly’s Devil’s Den, and the Bitter Blues, a gin, grapefruit juice, St. Germain and lemon libation from Jet Wine Bar, among others.

So far, eight Philadelphia area bars and restaurants are participating in the fundraiser: Rex 1516, Devil’s Den, Barren Hill Tavern, Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House, Ashton Cigar Bar, Jet Wine Bar and Old Eagle Tavern.

Here’s the full list:

Rex 1516 – Gins & Roses, $10, Bluecoat Gin, Old Tom’s Gin, watermelon juice, dry vermouth, lemon juice and rose bitters
Devil’s Den – Watermelon Gin Ricky, $9, made with gin, lime, watermelon, basil simple syrup and soda
Barren Hill Tavern & Brewery – Berry Mint Crush, $9, with gin, fresh berry puree, mint, lemon and tonic
Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House in Center City is keeping it classic with a Cool as Cucumber gin martini, $14
Ashton Cigar Bar – Blackberry Collins, $15, made with house-made blackberry puree and ginger-cardamom syrup
Jet Wine Bar – Bitter Blues, $8, shaken with gin, grapefruit juice, St. Germaine and lemon
Old Eagle Tavern – gin with blood orange juice and soda for $7
McCrossen’s Tavern – Fairmount Fizz, Bluecoat, St Germain, club soda, basil for $10

Half of the money from each gin-based cocktail sold will be donated to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter. Bluecoat is also supporting Brian Lipstein, President of Henry A. Davidsen, Master Tailors & Image Consultants, as a candidate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Man & Woman of the Year campaign.
