Mixology Night On The Pier Crowns A Cocktail Champion

Ambleside Pier

Last night, Harmony Arts Festival presented the 2nd Annual Mixology Night On The Pier, a celebration of cocktail culture.  Eight of Metro Vancouver’s top mixologists crafted unique cocktail creations for the Mixology Night guests to sample and enjoy.  After tasting, guests were invited to vote for their favourite to be crowned top bartender.
