Tortoise Supper Club Creates Cocktail For a Cause
River North Restaurant & Lounge Raising The Infant Welfare Society of Chicago During the Month of April
What if you could make the world a better place just by heading to a bar and ordering a drink? Chicago’s Tortoise Supper Club 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, joins forces with a local non-profit to help raise awareness and funds for that organization. The restaurant/lounge creates an original limited edition cocktail and donates $3 of every one sold to that month’s non-profit partner.
This month, 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 has created a drink called 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 delicious drink that’s as refreshing as it is balanced. 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.
