One may find public transport, tourist spots or even movie halls less crowded during the weekdays, but a visit to a pub in the city always guarantees a bunch of party-lovers chilling out in these happening places across the capital. Delhi-ites love to celebrate, whether there’s a reason for it or not. And cocktails are the essentials to build up the party mood. In fact, nowadays, millenials prefer cocktails more than the plain drinks.

As we visited two of the much talked about joints in town, we came across some fresh concepts by mixologists with years of experience. For instance, Rajesh, the bar manager at Antidot Waterbar Cafe has come up with flavoured beers that are popular among the visitors for their infused fresh-fruit pulp. They bring the authentic flavour out without or  with minimal use of artificial flavours. As a result, the drinks are light, refreshing and benefits the health. The flavoured beers have melon, blueberry, orange and some other flavours and each one of them are equally relishing.

 

On the other hand, Lord of the Drinks, a chain of restro-bars, spoil their guests with highly appealing alchoholic beverages. However, one might not be in the mood during the monsoon to step out and enjoy the drinks, the upbeat and mood-lifting music or the neoclassical-inspired architecture of the place. And, thus, experts have come up with easy-to- make cocktail recipes that can be prepared at home for any house party. A guest can never resist a tempting tale of beverages when attending a party and that is what a host must keep in mind to bring out the best of alchoholic beverages while hosting a get-together. And, once the season passes, go out and enjoy guys.
