Premixed bottled cocktails to try this weekend
The beverage brand’s G&T 2.0 is ideal for when you want an indulgent cocktail but are too lazy to make it yourself. It has three variants — Original, Cucumber and Lavender. While Original, a mix of English Juniper and Indian tonic, keeps the classic flavour of the G&T intact, Lavender uses an infusion of French lavender and Cucumber boasts the fresh notes of the vegetable. Rs.130. Available at select outlets.
One Tree Hill Mulled Wine Kadha
Grover Zampa Vineyards launches a bottled mulled wine called One Tree Hill Mulled Wine Kadha. The bottle brings together European and Indian flavours, so while there are classic mulled wine notes such as cinnamon, clove, ginger, star anise and orange peel, there are also kadha spices such as tulsi, black pepper and cardamom. Rs.650. Available in select outlets.
