In comparison to beer and spirits, cocktails are not that popular in Tanzania. For one, many restaurants and bars don’t have trained mixologists who understand the chemistry and artistry behind making a good cocktail. As a result, ordering a cocktail is risky business, as the bartender may just mix a bunch of alcohols, soda or juice together without any concern for taste.
