We’re a little less than a week away from the next Mixology Monday (I know, it seems like it came up really fast — we’re moving a little earlier in the month with this one, no reason to panic). This round takes place Monday, March 9, is hosted by the ladies of LUPEC-Boston, and the topic is The First Time.* Need more information? I’ll let hostess Pink Lady explain:
