One dollar from every Seaside Punch sold at Bud and Alley’s will now go to Alaqua Animal Refuge.

The Seaside Punch, a refreshing blend of vodka, chambord, peach, apple, sour, and pineapple juice, is the beachfront restaurant and bar’s most popular drink, which means this effort could turn into a huge fundraiser for the animal rescue located in Freeport, Florida.

It costs over $60,000 a month to operate Alaqua. So, stop by Bud and Alley’s, order a Seaside Punch and enjoy those gorgeous gulf views knowing you’ve done something to support this great cause.
