Trumbull Kitchen in Hartford is hosting a dinner on Wednesday, February 27, 2013, beginning at 6 p.m., pairing craft tequila cocktails featuring Patron Tequilas created by mixologist Derek Vitale with Mexican-inspired dishes by executive chef Chris Torla.
Begin with antojitos and pyrat cocktail with Patron Citronage during the reception.
