Community invited to give back as part of Hard Rock Heals Foundation initiatives
Who says barbecue can only be enjoyed during the summer season?
Now through Jan. 29, 2017, Hard Rock Cafe, Niagara Falls USA, is offering a new Heineken brisket burger and beer duet to heat up the winter months. The half-pound, Certified Angus Beef patty is topped with Heineken-braised brisket, caramelized barbecue onions, garlic aioli and Gouda cheese, served with Hard Rock's seasoned fries.
Additionally, Hard Rock Cafe, Niagara Falls USA, is mixing it up with new, limited-time mason jar cocktails. In addition to offering innovative, festive flavors for the season, two of Hard Rock's drinks will also give back to charity.
The new "Mix It Up" holiday cocktails, also available through Jan. 29, include:
•Angelo's Passion - Winner of Hard Rock's 2016 Global BARocker Championship, Angelo Delgado created this refreshing and fruity concoction made with Bacardi Superior Rum, Midori Melon Liqueur, Passion Fruit Reál and ginger beer.

•Maria Sangria - This mix of Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc, Havana Club Anejo Clasico, Lifewater Yumberry Pomegranate and tropical juices is shaken with fresh lime, orange and strawberries.

In the spirit of giving, for every Maria Sangria and Pomegranate Cooler purchased featuring Lifewater Yumberry Pomegranate, PepsiCo will donate 50 cents to the Hard Rock Heals Foundation, which aims to improve lives through the power of music.
