Earlier this month, we told you about Wisdom's genever cocktail contest, which asked customers to submit a new cocktail recipe using gins made by the Belgian distillery Diep 9. The finals are tonight, and competitors will be shaking up their drinks for a panel of judges, beginning at 8 p.m. The public is invited to attend and sample all of the cocktails for free. You'll be asked to vote for a winner, which will be featured on the bar's menu.
