Next time you do happy hour at Mixtape, queue up this trio of drinks. From left: Pom de Replay, a “deep-autumn spin on a margarita” that will make Rihanna fans put their hands up to the ceiling; House Whiskey Sour, a classic concoction that we could keep on repeat; and Twirl On Them Haters, a vodka-centric drink with pink lemonade and plenty of spice, so you can keep that hot sauce in your bag. Mixtape, 4907 Penn Ave., Garfield. 412.661.1727. mixtapepgh.com.
Using one of the most romantic combinations — strawberries and Champagne — to create one of the most beloved hybrids — alcohol-infused desserts — Cakery Square has us head over heels. Co-owner Amber Greene collaborated with the shop’s team of bakers to perfect the recipe for this vanilla Champagne torte with strawberry and Champagne mousse filling, topped with dreamy swirls of strawberry buttercream. We’re in love! Cakery Square, 159 E. Bridge St., Homestead. 412.514.9443. cakerysquare.com.
How pretty is this dish? Rich in flavor without being too filling, Senti’s colorful Insalata di Polipo or Octopus Salad brightens even the dreariest winter days. Keep an eye out for this dish, as it’s a specialty menu item that is not always available. To savor more seafood at the Lawrenceville locale, make a reservation for the traditional Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas Eve. Senti, 3473 Butler St., Lawrenceville. 412.586.4347. sentirestaurant.com.
