Chartreuse Kitchen
A Detroit restaurant known as one of the best spots in the city for a date night is helping raise money for the charity Higher Hopes, which supports feeding underprivileged children in the community, throughout the month of March. Chartreuse Kitchen & Cocktails located at 15 Kirby Street in Detroit's cultural district (which includes the Detroit Institute of Arts, Charles H Wright Museum of African History, Michigan Science Center, and Wayne State University) will donate $2 to Higher Hopes from every Last World cocktail sold at this hot date night spot during the month.

The “Last Word” cocktail is a gin-based, prohibition-era cocktail originally developed at the Detroit Athletic Club and is now a hit all over the United States. Detroit's societal elite indulged in the cocktail at the not-so-secret speakeasy located within the D.A.C. during prohibition. Recently, the drink has seen a resurgence in popularity. The Last Word cocktail consists of equal amounts of gin, green Chartreuse, maraschino liqueur, and freshly pressed lime juice, which are combined in a shaker with ice. After shaking, the mix is poured through a cocktail strainer and is served straight up.
