This June, Felipe’s Mexican Taqueria encourages customers to “have a heart of gold” as the restaurant teams up with local nonprofit organization, Son of a Saint. Here are 5 things you need to know about the Golden Frozen Mango Margarita.
1. Drinking for a cause.
The tequila won’t be the only thing making you feel warm and fuzzy inside. During June, $1 from every Golden Frozen Mango Margarita sold will be donated to the Son of a Saint Foundation. This local nonprofit actively works to enhance the lives of fatherless boys through mentorship, emotional support, development and life skills.
2. Local origins.
Son of a Saint was founded in 2011 by Bivian “Sonny” Lee III, son of the late Bivian Lee Jr., NFL defensive back for the New Orleans Saints from 1971 to 1975. After understanding the hardships of growing up without a father, Sonny founded Son of a Saint in honor of his father and single mother. His goal is to better the lives of a special group of fatherless young males around the New Orleans area.
3. Son of a Saint & the Felipe’s family.
“We’ve seen firsthand the positive impact Son of a Saint has in our city,” said Lon Nichols, Felipe’s HR Director. “The first two Son of a Saint graduates have been part of the Felipe’s team. We will continue to support this amazing program that is making a tremendous difference in the lives of young men in New Orleans.”
4. Fresh Craft Ingredients.
The Felipe’s Golden Frozen Mango Margarita is made with 100% blue agave tequila, fresh-squeezed juices, and a house-made mango puree. Served in a sugar coated glass and garnished with a slice of lime, this drink is too cool to pass up.
5. Sip it while you can.
Hurry to get your Golden Frozen Mango Margarita, as it’s only available the month of June. You won’t want to regret indulging in this fresh frozen cocktail.
