What if you could make the world a better place just by heading to a bar and ordering a drink? Well, it’s a start.
Chicago’s Tortoise Supper Club (350 North State St. in Chicago, IL. ) is helping diners do just that through their Cocktails for a Cause program. Every month the metropolitan supper club, known for its steaks, chops and fresh seafood, partners with a Chicago non-profit to help raise awareness and funds for that organization. The River North restaurant creates an original limited edition cocktail and donates $3 of every one sold to that month’s non-profit partner.
In April, Tortoise Supper Club is working to support The Angel Harvey Family Health Center – Infant Welfare Society of Chicago, a community health center that serves more than 13,000 patients from the city’s most vulnerable and medically underserved populations. In honor of their April partnership, the team at TSC created Angel’s Elixir, a modern twist on the popular Brazilian Batida cocktail. This beverage combines Cachaça, Fresh Lime Juice and a housemade Strawberry Shrub (strawberry, apple cider vinegar and a touch of black pepper) to create a refreshing drink. The Angel’s Elixir is finished off with a sprig of aromatic Rosemary and some Candied Strawberry.
The Angel’s Elixir cocktail will be available through April 30th; $3 from every one sold will go directly to IWS.
Weekly specials include Half Priced Signature Cocktails on Wednesdays, Sautéed Frog Legs and Buttermilk Battered Cod on Fridays, Northwoods Dry Rubbed Prime Rib on Saturdays and $1 Oysters / $1 Shrimp Cocktail from 4:30 – 6:30 pm on weekdays.
