The Mariner Martini

Mariner_Martini_2When we at SEA AND BE SCENE TV were putting together our Spring Special we wanted something that celebrated the new season here on Canada's East Coast - so we reached out to our friends at 2 Doors Down in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

The cool new spot that prides themselves on a fresh and creative menu using as many local sourced ingredients as they can - that includes adult beverages.

Sweethearts that they are, they've whipped up an original East Coast special just for us! Introducing...
