Schweppes launched its #UltimateMixer Sessions on Thursday, 6th June, with an evening of entertainment at Opium in Dublin. Party goers welcomed in the first rays of summer as they danced the night away to Dublin’s favourite musical trio, Riff Shop, and sipped on Schweppes signature cocktails in the Botanical Garden at Opium.

Opium’s mixologists showcased Schweppes’ expanding range of premium mixers, each one designed to perfectly complement the finest white and dark spirits. DJ January Russell Winters was there to sample the flavours, along with style blogger Lawson Mpame and food bloggers, Patrick Hanlon and Russell Alford from the Gastro Gays. Also joining in the fun were TV presenter and fashion blogger, Ciara O’Doherty, FM104’s Man About Town, Rob Kenny, Northern Irish blogger, Tiffany Brien, and radio host, Melissa Riddell.
