PITTSBURGH, PA, UNITED STATES, Jan. 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — For those sticking to their dry January commitments, DiAnoia’s Eatery is hosting a five-course mocktail dinner to close out the month. On Sunday, January 30 at 6:00 pm, enjoy a prix fixe dinner expertly paired with handcrafted mocktails made with non-alcoholic Seedlip liqueurs. Tickets are available for $85 at dianoiaseatery.com.

Enjoy an extensive menu complemented by non-alcoholic cocktails made with seasonal ingredients, such as the “Ponce D’Inverno” with Seedlip Grove & Spiced, Pomegranate, Blackberry, Fennel, Lemon and Ginger or the spicy and acidic “Tutto Pepe” made with Seedlip Garden, Lime, demerara and Calabrian chili, which will become part of the regular cocktail menu at DiAnoia’s.

The Mocktail Dinner will be the first installment in a new series of community dinners taking place quarterly in DiAnoia’s top floor dining room and bar, La Sala di Giulietta. Each dinner will highlight seasonal ingredients, and future events will feature wine and cocktail pairings.

“We hope to highlight dishes and beverages developed especially for each event,” said owner Dave Anoia. “This first dinner offers a fun twist for anyone ending a dry January or exploring the dry lifestyle. We have developed six signature drinks, and they are not your typical non-alcoholic cocktails. Blended with fresh flavors like Calabrian chili, basil, cucumber and citrus, the non-alcoholic liqueurs give the drinks the sophisticated flavor profile you’d expect from a traditional craft cocktail.”

The full menu includes:

Welcome Drink: “Contrafatto” with Seedlip Spiced, vanilla pod, lemon, aranciata soda

Homemade breads with assorted pastries
Pairing with non-alcoholic cocktails: “Luna Mezza Mare” with Seedlip Garden and Spiced, cucumber, lemon, basil and mineral water

Pairing with Mocktail: “Tutto Pepe” with Seedlip Garden, Calabrian chili, lime and demerara

Winter lasagna with beet and carrot bolognese, topped with red beet paste and celery root bechamel

Lamb two ways, with braised lamb shoulder and roast rack of lamb on a mushroom risotto
Mocktail Pairing: “Ponce D’Inverno” with Seedlip Grove and Spiced, pomegranate, blackberry, fennel seed, lemon and ginger

Pistachio tiramisu made with espresso-soaked gingerbreads, whipped pistachio mascarpone, cocoa powder and pistachios
