For nearly four decades, Lincoln Park Community Services has been dedicated to serving individuals experiencing homelessness in Chicago. With 2 locations, they address the immediate needs such as food, showers, clothing, identification, and mental health counseling. In addition, they offer interim housing and provide case management services, Drop-in Services and Street Outreach.

Seeing the dedication and care for the community LPCS has brought to Chicago, ImpEx Beverages and their brands (who, themselves, are driven to serve their own communities and the Earth) is excited to be a part of such and amazing event raising money and awareness for the less fortunate and their needs. As importers of fine boutique sprits from around the globe, we felt the natural way to raise these was by raising a glass with gala attendees and LCPS supporters.

ImpEx will be featuring two Spring/Summer-themed cocktails at the upcoming Metamorphosis Gala fundraiser for Lincoln Park Community services on April 19, 2024 at Venue West.

For those seeking a taste of springtime bliss, indulge in the Bee’s Knees cocktail. Featuring Herb Garden Lemon Verbena and Juniper Gin, accented with zesty lemon and sweet honey, this delightful concoction is a celebration of the season’s bounty. Perfect for large gatherings, the Bee’s Knees is easy to batch, ensuring that every sip is as fresh and flavorful as the last.

Add the gin, lemon juice, and honey syrup to a mixing tin with ice. Shake for twenty seconds.
Strain over ice into the glass of your choice.
