5. Hotel Tango

This veteran-owned distillery is an Indy favorite for grabbing a craft cocktail. Featuring a Pride Vodka to celebrate this June, Hotel Tango is supporting the LGBTQ+ military community. Proceeds from the 2023 Pride Vodka support the Modern Military Association, the nation's largest organization of LGBTQ service members, military spouses, veterans, their families and allies. The art for this year's limited edition Pride Vodka bottle was done by a Sao Paulo-based artist, Jun Ioneda.

Plus, this month, Hotel Tango is launching Operation: Pride Proudly, where Hotel Tango will offer a drink-to-donate for their new pride cocktail, "Hotel Tango For All". For every "Hotel Tango For All" cocktail sold, HT will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Modern Military Association of America. This cocktail will be available in Hotel Tango tasting rooms all of June 2023. Ingredients include Hotel Tango Pride Vodka, strawberries, lychee simple, and fresh lime juice.
