Bar faces heat for "Date Grape" drink

SPOKANE, Wa. (CBS) -- A new bar in Spokane, Washington is stirring up controversy over the name of a new drink.

It's called "Date Grape Koolaid" and many say it's an inappropriate play on words that is also insensitive to rape victims.

The Daiquiri Factory has received angry messages on its Facebook page asking owners to change the name.

The bar responded that there are plenty of drink names that could be found offensive.
