Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Through October, many Miami bars and restaurants offer an assortment of eats and drinks in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month — or #Pinktober if you want to hashtag it — which celebrates its 35th anniversary this year.

The annual nationwide effort to increase public knowledge of the disease and raise money for ongoing research was founded in 1985 as a partnership between the American Cancer Society and the pharmaceutical division of Imperial Chemical Industries, now a part of AstraZeneca, which produces several anti-breast cancer drugs.

Read on for a list of Miami spots raising awareness with the most original pink food and drinks, from cocktails to sweet treats with a purpose.
