Greenpoint’s Sereneco (113 Franklin St.) is offering a new zero-proof drink menu in honor of Dry January

Owner and beverage director, Billy Van Dolsen, highlights local purveyors and premium ingredients on the new mocktail menu. Options include the Bittersweet Bliss with Three Spirit Social Elixir, orange, lemon, and ginger beer; the Livener Paloma with Three Spirit Livener, grapefruit, lime, agave, and soda; and the Nightcap Penicillin with Three Spirit Nightcap, lemon, honey, and ginger.

Other non-alcoholic offerings at Sereneco include Athletic Brewing’s Golden Ale, Fermentorium Kombucha, St. Agrestis Phony Negroni, and Curious Elixirs No. 2.
