Trinidad Sand

Sandeman Port was the most recent sponsor of the Mixoloseum’s Thursday Drink Night.  On December 18th a collection of cocktail bloggers, bartenders, and other cocktail enthusiasts signed in to the Mixoloseum’s Bar and spent the evening mixing cocktails with a rarely-used ingredient: port.
