FOOD and DRINKS
This beautiful drink was served in a martini glass and was a blend of gentleman jack with sweet and sour and orange marmalade. The real essence lies in sipping it later by layer which renders the sober fruity taste at the beginning slowly transitioning to the alcohol flavor.
Served in a hurricane glass with pineapple garnish, this drink had crushed ice in a mix of pineapple sour, blue Curacao and scotch. It tasted absolutely great and furnished apt pineapple touch.
Served in a old fashioned glass with orange garnish, this was the more spiked and on the bitter side drink made from campari and bowmore single malt whisky. A good try.
Favorite from the lot, thanks to the litchi touch, this drink has cherry Brandy, vodka, lime and litchi juice mixed to perfection.
