CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) – The Cuyahoga County Board of Health officials have told a bar to stop serving a drink with a tampon applicator topper.
A sanitarian went to Yuzu Monday after getting a number of complaints on the Cuyahoga County Board of Health’s Facebook and webpage.
Health officials said the bar has agreed to stop serving the drink, but will still let customers make donations to Cleveland’s Domestic Violence and Child Advocacy Center.
The Lakewood bar faced backlash when it featured the new drink they called, “Even Can’t Literally” cocktail.
The drink is a crushed berry margarita, but it is garnished with a tampon applicator.
The featured drink may be visually unappealing, but $1 of each purchase was being donated to women’s shelters in the Cleveland area, according to the bar’s Facebook post.
