A nod to the famous rainbow flag as first conceived in 1978, the name ‘Prism Chasing’ represents a love for the beauty of diversity. This cocktail is inspired by both the essence of Pride—a celebration of a strong sense of self and community, and light— a product of beautifully colorful parts. Proceeds from each cocktail benefit the LGBTQ Center of Durham.
