A one-time-only date-night dinner party with Angostura Bitters and Chin Chin will celebrate the sober and sober-curious among us, who are nevertheless still partial to a little spice. With only 40 people per dinner, seats are limited – and you and your chosen guest could win a spot.

Valued at $200 per couple, the dinner on Wednesday September 6, 2023, will see you and your significant (or, fingers crossed, soon to be significant) other, enjoy a date night that pairs no- and low-alcohol serves with Chin Chin’s Chii Town in Surry Hills signature flavourful foods.

Hosted by Angostura Bitters, the dinner will be led by three no- and low-alcohol cocktails that each showcase an aromatic bitter: the Angostura Citrus Serenity Spritz, featuring yuzu, grapefruit, lemongrass, Orange Bitters and soda; the Angostura Tropical Cocoa Breeze, featuring pineapple, lime, orange, coconut orgeat and Cocoa Bitters; and the Chin Chin Thai Lemon Lime & Bitters Swizzle, featuring spiced ginger ale, lime, Thai basil chilli and Aromatic Bitters.

They’ll be paired with a menu curated by Chin Chin executive chef, Benjamin Cooper, who will employ Angostura Bitters at the heart of each serve.

Dishes will include kingfish sashimi with lime, chilli, coconut and Thai basil; crispy duck pancakes with Orange Bitters and smoked chilli sambal; roast chicken with shiitake mushroom stuffing, gravy, Aromatic Bitters, tomato and green chilli relish; and chargrilled Angus beef marinated with Cocoa Bitters and laab paste, chilli jam and Thai basil.

There are also sides of steamed bok choy and snow peas with light soy and ginger, and a butter lettuce salad with yellow bean and orange bitters dressing. Finish the night with a coconut panna cotta laced with Cocoa Bitters and espresso syrup.

The dinner has been designed to reflect what Angostura Bitters say is an emerging trend of “low- to no-alcohol” drinking habits in gen Z and millennials. Research conducted by the brand found that nearly half (48 per cent) of the demographic polled say they would be more inclined to go on a date with someone if they indicated their drinking preferences prior, more than half (54 per cent) find it more attractive when potential matches are confident within themselves and transparent with their drinking preferences, and that four in five low- to no-alcohol drinkers (79 per cent) responded that they wish there were more sober dating venues around.

Served in an intimate 40-seat private room at Chin Chin, the scene is set for a dinner party specifically designed to tantalise your tastebuds.
