Ketel One Family Made Vodka Debuts Official Cocktail for the GLAAD Media Awards

Ahead of tomorrow’s GLAAD Media Awards, our friends at Ketel One Family Made Vodka have unveiled the official cocktail to sip alongside the event: The LGBTini, created by LGBTQ+ bartender Fanny Chu (Who joined us this holiday season as part of our Marvelous Hour series). This is a part of Ketel One’s Makers of Marvelous program: raising a glass to the bartenders who have continued to bring delight - and a touch of magic - to our lives through their commitment to craft, hospitality, and inclusivity.

As the world moves closer towards reopening, Ketel One is giving back to bartenders and the hospitality community at large whose livelihoods have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic. 

Ketel One has been a longtime supporter of GLAAD, and especially the GLAAD Media Awards, for over a decade. In lieu of raising a glass to our Award winners in person, check out the recipe for the LGBTini below to sip while you tune in for the premiere of the GLAAD Media Awards tomorrow, April 8 at 8:00 PM on YouTube, or stream on Hulu through June!

Get a bottle of Ketel One Vodka delivered via Drizly and post a photo of your LGBTini with the tag #MakeItMarvelous - and be sure to follow the show with #GLAADawards
