“Too much of anything is bad, but too much of good whiskey is barely enough” – Mark Twain
For the whiskey connoisseurs, there wasn’t any dearth of it at the Old Fashioned Cocktail Mixing wingding at the dazzling Story Club & Lounge, Westin Gurgaon. Award Winning Bartenders, Jitender and Chirag, stirred up signature drinks and spun an impressive night for vintage cocktail aficionados.
Reasons why the cocktail night was everything you’d ask for:
1. Nothing Old Fashioned
The Classic Old Fashioned was given an innovative twist by dexterous bartenders. Traditionally, Old Fashioned is swirled by muddling sugar/jiggery with Bitters and then adding liquor – whiskey or brandy. Add a citrus rind and serve it in the tumbler glass named after the drink itself. There were more versions to the signature drink than you could envisage. Every drink had a unique personality and was achieved with precision – it was palette-addiction.
PS: Unite it with Bulleit Bourbon, top it up with a cherry and relish the taste of old Kentucky.
Delectable drinks and scrumptious Chicken Tikka, mezze platter and Jalapenos Poppers made this night nifty.
2. The Alluring Setting
The ambiance is conducive for high indulgence. The Club, with its resplendence and swish setting becomes an ideal lounge to enjoy your favorite tipples. Exactly what it was like – while the bartenders stirred up a storm, guests luxuriated in the mood-lit plush ambiance.
3. Electrifying Music
The music was an eclectic mix of commercial, house and Bollywood. It had people sway to popular melodies in high spirits.
