Pop-up food and drink pairing venue Bitter Social is encouraging scousers to say “Ti amo” to their loved ones this Valentine’s Day during a special Italian-themed dinner.

The restaurant has teamed up with artisanal Italian vermouth company Mancino to host a four-course food and drink pairing evening – From Mancino, with Love – with European Ambassador Domenico Carella.

Guests will be taken on a journey through the world of vermouth – a wine fortified with brandy or other spirits and aromatised with herbs and botanicals – by international drinks expert Domenico whilst enjoying three courses of romance-laden Italian food.

Novice or expert – this will be a romantic evening and the food and drink is set to be delicious either way.

Later on in the evening guests can enjoy Vermouth cocktails and oysters – one of the world’s most effective aphrodisiacs!

Bitter Social has a noticeable nod to Italy – including their hand-painted tables commissioned by another Italian drinks company – Amaro Montenegro.

The evening starts at 7pm with welcome drinks, and guests will be seated by 7.30pm for food and drink to be served.

Tickets are £90 per couple (£45pp), and later on in the evening Vermouth cocktails and oysters will be available to purchase.

Places are limited, so to book a table visit the evening’s Eventbrite page here.
