The Indian Premier League fervor has caught up! Ajay Nayyar, United Spirits Brand Ambassador, took lead and initiated an exciting sojourn to stir up a storm. A master class was designed at the Odeon Social, Connaught Place, thematically wrapped around the most-loved game in India – cricket. This class was a perfect way to add to the excitement of the on-going IPL.
Ajay created some fun cocktails, undemanding, ones you could easily stir up at home for your friends and guests – perfect for a fiesta con amigos to watch the nail-biting matches. It was so easy and enjoyable that a few from the audience actually got up to mix a few cocktails themselves, plainly replicating Ajay. They enjoyed trying their hand at being mixologists by creating these drinks using Smirnoff No. 21, the world's No. 1 classic premium vodka, as well as other popular flavors such as Smirnoff Espresso and Smirnoff Orange. Cocktails such as ‘Oh All Out’ and ‘Espresso League’ caught our fancy and tickled our taste buds alongside some scrumptious nibble.
Quick Recipe of Espresso League – mix Espresso with coke and unify it with some Smirnoff Espresso Vodka. Shake it well with ice cubes and voila, your tipple is ready.
Drinks and the cricket fervor go hand-in-hand and hence, this interactive session brought fans of the IPL and cocktail enthusiasts together.
Ajay said, “The masterclass on cricket cocktails was the perfect way to add to the excitement of the on-going Indian Premier League. By the end of the session, the guests learned how to create great cocktails at home! So if you’re throwing a home party with a match screening for friends, you know you do not need to be a professional to bowl them over with the best mixed drinks.’
The session ended on a high note with the Delhi chapter of USL-Diageo’s IPL cocktails session turning the audience into mixologists!
