Drink 'em Dry

Elle Cashin | January 2, 2019 | Feature Features

One River North restaurant is helping you keep your New Year's resolution.
Mocktails from Siena Tavern

The holidays are over and we could all use a little detox. For those trying their hands—or tongues, rather—at Dry January this year, Siena Tavern has good news. The River North restaurant tapped its bartenders to create a quartet of off-the-menu mocktails, cleverly named with negative numbers to reflect its normal numbered drink list. Nos. -11 through -14 are made up of various combinations of muddled fruit and juices for sippers so scrumptious you won’t even miss the booze. Try the No. -12, with peach, mint and ginger beer served in a coupe, or the No. -14, a mix of strawberries and pineapple juice with a lemonade base. Too tempting to go out? Here, the mixologists share one recipe for you to try at home:

No. -11
4 slices strawberry
2 blackberries
1 ounce pineapple juice
3/4 ounce lime juice
1/4 ounce lemon juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup

Shake all ingredients together in a cocktail mixer and strain into a martini glass. Top off with soda water and garnish with a blackberry.

Happy New Year—and happy cleansing! 51 W. Kinzie St., 312.595.1322
