How About Having A Refreshing Quarantini?

New Delhi:  Self-isolation isn’t 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 Qurantini 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.
