Chartreuse cocktails honor Zags’ longtime late chaplain

Father Tony was a fan of Chartreuse as well as the Bulldogs.

He served as Gonzaga University’s basketball chaplain for 20 years, sitting on the end of the bench and ending conversations with the phrase “to be continued.”

He didn’t say goodbye.

The Rev. Anthony “Tony” Lehmann S.J. died 15 years ago after a brief battle with leukemia. Now, his beloved Zags are headed to the Final Four. And the University District restaurant Clover is honoring the Chartreuse-drinking priest by donating a dollar from every drink from its special Father Tony Cocktail Menu to GU’s Father Tony Lehmann S.J. Scholarship Fund.

The promotion runs through April 3.

Guests who order four of the specialty Chartreuse cocktail or purchase a bottle of Dunham Cellars’ Zags Red blend will be entered into a drawing to win two tickets to Clover’s brewer’s dinner June 20.

The cocktails run from $11 to $13. They are:

The Drink Without a Name (aka The Harrington) – Dry Fly Vodka, Cointreau and Chartreuse for $12

The Champs-Elysees – cognac, lemon, Chartreuse, sugar and Angostura bitters for $11

The Bijou – gin, sweet vermouth, Chartreuse and orange bitters for $13

The Tipperary – Irish whiskey, sweet vermouth and Chartreuse for $11

The Endeavor – bourbon, Chartreuse, Cocchi Americano and Angostura bitters for $13

The Indochine – Zacapa rum, Chartreuse, lime, sugar and Thai basil for $11

Clover is located at 913 E. Sharp Ave. Call (509) 487-2937. On the web:
