Parallel Post is excitied to announce their debut collaborative effort with 2014 International Craft Award winner and local craft spirit Onyx Moonshine, the first legal ultra-premium moonshine brand home based in East Hartford, CT. This prohibition era-styled dinner is scheduled for Thursday, September 11th from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. The Onyx Moonshine Dinner Pairings event will provide guests with a unique opportunity to savor an exclusive culinary menu accented with Onyx Moonshine flavorings including the original Onyx Moonshine, Sweet Stash, Onyx 111, Apple Honey Infusion, and Cape Cod Cranberry.
For $75 per person (tax and 18 percent gratuity not included), Chef de Cuisine, Ali Goss and Executive Chef, Chris Molyneux of Parallel Post will delight guests with a speak-easy atmosphere staged by Parallel Post and Onyx Moonshine, while delighting the palate with a five-course tasting menu flavored with varieties of moonshine, and accompanied with glass samplings served by Onyx Moonshine representatives. Event attendees will also have the opportunity to be educated on the symbolic and once outlawed liquor, while also sipping additional cocktail creations presented by Parallel Post’s resident mixologist, Greg Genias aka “Bootleg Greg.”
The menu for the event – much like Parallel Post’s weekly-changing restaurant menu – focuses on localism and follows the philosophy that natural and sustainable products, and responsible farming, are the key components in ingredient selection. The fare will feature Onyx Moonshine-infused dishes with local farm fresh offerings such as Drunken Scallop Ceviche, Gilbertie’s Fall Harvest Salad with cape cod cranberry moonshine vinaigrette and Prohibition Canapés.
Tickets to the Parallel Post hosted Onyx Moonshine Dinner Pairings event are limited and are only available for advance purchase at $75++ per person for guests 21 & over (valid driver license must be presented upon arrival). To RSVP for the September 4 dinner, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
