San Antonio restaurant renames popular drink, donates funds to Ukraine

With President Biden’s executive order to ban Russian imports of seafood, alcohol, and diamonds, those in the service industry have chosen to stand in solidarity with Ukraine.

While some stores have gone as far as removing Russian liquors off their shelves, another local restaurant has decided to rename its popular drinks and donate to the Ukrainian community.

Boiler House SA is one of those establishments. The restaurant is giving its classic Moscow Mule a new name— the Kyiv Mule. The restaurant said the drink is made with Shevkoff Luxury Ukrainian Vodka, fever tree ginger beer and fresh lime.

In addition to renaming the drink after Ukraine’s capitol, Boiler House said that $1 from every sale will go to World Central Kitchen, a company that is providing fresh meals to Ukrainian families fleeing home and those who remain in the country.

Boiler House SA is located at 312 Pearl Parkway, Building 3. The restaurant is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m.- 10 p.m, Friday 11 a.m.–11 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.–11 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m.–10 p.m.
