Ronnie McDonnie Cocktail at The Gin Joint

Throughout the month of February, The Gin Joint is featuring a cocktail to benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Charleston. All profits from the cocktail we’ve playfully called the “Ronnie McDonnie” will go to the organization that provides a home away from home for families while their children undergo extensive medical treatment.

Created by our beverage director James Bolt, the cocktail features chile-infused mezcal, along with Aperol, lime juice and salted honey for a unique, yet approachable take on a smoky margarita. The drink’s red hue, given by the bittersweet aperitif Aperol, was inspired by Ronald McDonald’s signature red shoes [which you also find on display inside].

Our crew has loved supporting the local Ronald McDonald House in the past by cooking and serving  meals for families staying in the home. Now, we want to give people a feel-good reason to come enjoy a cocktail… or two.

On the menu from February 1st through 28th, the “Ronnie McDonnie” cocktail is $10, and ALL proceeds of the drink go to the Ronald McDonald House of Charleston. See what else is on the seasonal cocktail menu here.
