Westgate Resorts Creates Specialty ‘Liberty Lemonade’ Cocktail to Honor U.S. Military Members

Jun 22, 2023

ORLANDO, Fla. – June 22, 2023 – Westgate Resorts announced the creation of a new specialty cocktail with a cause. The “Liberty Lemonade” will be sold at Westgate bars and restaurants across the country to honor active U.S. military members and raise money to support veteran causes.

From every “Liberty Lemonade” sold, $5 will go directly toward supporting our armed forces through the Westgate Foundation, a nonprofit that helps team members during times of unforeseen crisis, while also giving back to Westgate resort communities through donations, grants, volunteerism and more.

In addition to offering special discounts for our military servicemen and women, Westgate Resorts is proud to provide 1,000 military families a free vacation during Military Weekend, an annual event honoring their service. Proceeds from this specialty cocktail will be presented at the 2023 Military Weekend event in December.

“Military Weekend is Westgate’s chance to give back to the heroes that have protected us and provided us the freedoms that all Americans enjoy,” said Westgate Resorts Chief Operating Officer Mark Waltrip.

The “Liberty Lemonade” cocktail is made with Wheatley vodka, fresh lemonade, cherry syrup, Blue Curaçao and is served on the rocks.



Founded in 2001, the Westgate Foundation’s mission is to be a catalyst for positive change by partnering with organizations that seek to end the nation’s drug epidemic, create stability for families in need, provide critical resources to active military and veterans and develop workforce readiness programs across the country.

The Westgate Foundation is also equally dedicated to supporting Westgate Team Members when they need it most through the internal David’s Dollars Team Member Crisis Fund. Since its inception, over $16.5 million has been donated to nonprofit organizations and individuals across the nation.
