New Delhi. Self-isolation isnt always a bad thing, especially if you have a well-stocked bar! The only catch, not all of us know how to make our go-to cocktail at home! We called in the experts from Diageo India to help us perfect our amateur run as bartenders.

Our first batch of cocktails is vodka-based, we’ve used Ketel One but these recipes work with all vodka brands.

This by no means should be treated as an encouragement to take to the bottle; we’d like to think of it more as a way to spend time creating the one drink you’d love to sip all evening.

Dutch mule

  • 60ml Ketel One Vodka
  • 20 ml Lime juice

15 ml Ginger syrup (Bring to boil 150 ml of water with chopped ginger, add 120 grms of sugar and allow to dissolve)/ add 15 ml sugar syrup & 15 ml ginger juice to your drink

  • Fill your class with ice
  • Top with Ginger ale/ Soda

Method: Build all the ingredients into a tall glass, top with ice, stir and top with ginger ale/ soda

  • Garnish: Lime & Ginger Slice
  • Watermelon Martini
  • 50ml Ketel One Vodka
  • 50 -70 gms cubes of fresh watermelon
  • 2-3 TSP Sugar depends on the sweetness of the fruit

Don’t fret over a Martini glass, if you don’t have one, feel free to use any glass.
