Last week, I attended a fun event at Shisha Bar Stock Exchange. Shantanu Sengupta, United Spirits Brand Ambassador took an exciting cocktail making masterclass for us bloggers and the theme was cricket. We learned how to make cocktails such as ‘Smirnoff PowerPlay’ and ‘Summer Cricket’ and also got to play the role of a mixologist! I created Smirnoff Cool Off, a refreshing drink made with Smirnoff 21, lychee juice, cranberry juice, lime water and rose water. And if I may add, did a pretty good job 🙂
Shantanu was a very good teacher explaining to us the nuances of making and serving cocktails – sharing tips and tricks on how to pour a drink, how to stir properly and how to taste a drink before serving to someone else. The best part about the session was that he chose cocktails which don’t require too many ingredients, are very easy to make and apt for summer.
Here are a few recipes if you want to try your hand at making some delicious cocktails at home.
