Turlock bar serves up a Kaepernick special

First there was the Kaepernick hot dog. Then Kaepernick cupcakes and cookies. Could the Kaepernick drink be far behind? Of course not.

First there was the Kaepernick hot dog. Then Kaepernick cupcakes and cookies. Could the Kaepernick drink be far behind? Of course not.

Wellington Station in downtown Turlock is serving up the Pink Drank, a concoction that owner Tony Walker says came from the 49ers quarterback and Pitman High graduate himself.

Kaepernick's siblings provided the bar with the recipe, and they are serving it up for $6. This Sunday and next, anyone who orders a Pink Drank and throws in an extra dollar will be making a donation to Camp Taylor, a donation that Wellington will match.

Camp Taylor is a camp for children with heart problems, which Kaepernick and his family have supported for several years.

Pink Drank is a mix of raspberry vodka, raspberry lemonade, blackberries and mint. It's got a tart taste that belies the alcohol, making it nearly as dangerous as Colin Kaepernick running with the ball.
