PITTSBURGH, PA, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- For those keeping true 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 p.m., enjoy a prix-fixe dinner paired expertly with craft mocktails made with non-alcoholic Seedlip spirits. Tickets are available for $85 at dianoiaseatery.com.

Enjoy a hearty menu complemented by mocktails made with seasonal ingredients, like the “Ponce D’Inverno” with Seedlip Grove & Spiced, Pomegranate, Blackberry, Fennel Seed, Lemon, and Ginger or the the spicy and tangy “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 of a new communal dinner series to be held quarterly in DiAnoia’s upstairs dining room and bar, La Sala di Giulietta. Each dinner will highlight seasonal ingredients, and future events will feature wine and cocktail pairings.

“We’re looking forward to spotlighting dishes and drinks developed especially for each event,” said owner Dave Anoia. “This first dinner offers a fun twist for anyone finishing out Dry January or exploring the dry lifestyle. We’ve developed six signature drinks – and they’re not your typical mocktails. Mixed with fresh flavors like Calabrian chili, basil, cucumber and citrus, the non-alcoholic spirits give the drinks the sophisticated flavor profile that you’d expect from a traditional craft cocktail.”
