Last night guests were serenaded while sipping #CocoRosa at the sold-out benefit, Broadway United for Puerto Rico. Our friends at Flaco Coquito - The Skinny Coquito - invited Wild Hibiscus to join them at the bar to support this concert benefit. We’re happy to share that $2,000 was raised, and all funds will benefit hurricane relief efforts with United for Puerto Rico.
Broadway Diversity Project and We So Hapa brought together a stunning roster of talented performers who generously donated their time and talent to support the more than 3 million American citizens in Puerto Rico still suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.
Helmed by Broadway's Diane Phelan (The King and I, Here Lies Love) with Musical Direction by Lena Gabrielle, the evening boasted performances from:
Renee Albulario (Here Lies Love), Alex Chester (Grinch), Sean Patrick Doyle (Kinky Boots), Megan Masako Haley Homes (Pacific Overtures), Devin Ilaw (Miss Saigon), Arielle Jacobs (In the Heights), Kelly McCormick (Carousel), Maria-Christina Oliveras (Amelie), Diane Phelan (The King and I), Sam Poon (The King and I), Celia Mei Rubin (Great Comet), Jennifer Sanchez (On Your Feet), Jesse Swimm (School of Rock), Sam Tanabe (Allegiance), Jessica Wu (Miss Saigon) and EJ Zimmerman (Les Miserables).

Great article in The Wall Street Journal by Aleksandra Crapanzano, exploring makeover of the mocktail. Showing up on more and more menus these days, bartenders and mixologists are sprucing them up, using dry sodas, non-alcoholic distilled beverages, plus spices and fresh ingredients from the kitchen and garden. That includes florals in a big way, like rose, hibiscus and the butterfly pea flower. Have fun experimenting at home with our trio of concentrates, in addition to dried and candied flowers: www.wildhibiscus.com. https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-rise-of-the-sophisticated-mocktail-alcohol-free-drinks-go-gourmet-1503493200 (more…)
