Monsoon brings coolness in the air when all you wish to do is curl up in your blanket and take a long nap. While the usual happens again and again, not all of us have that luxury as we have jobs that we need to do.

How about twisting things up with a curious yet mouth-watering combination?

One of the really great bartender duties is when bartenders lean on with a towel thrown over their shoulder and a welcoming smile. Picture that. Don’t you wish to pull up a stool?With the monsoon season setting in, it's a great idea to say goodbye to stress with your near and dear ones at home and the rain drizzling in the background. Also, throwing a weekend house party to celebrate monsoon is the perfect way to unwind after a hectic week. We don't really need an occasion or reason for a round of cocktails. What can be better than to enjoy a lazy rainy day with cocktail in your hand? As everyone babble, the flavour of conversation chips in while drinking these refreshing and delicious cocktails.

Give a delicious quirk to your rainy evenings with these easy-to-make cocktails as you bring out the bartender in you to whip up some delicious cocktails. So, here we are with some of the best cocktail ideas that incorporate perfectly with the mood of monsoon.

  • 25 oz. of Moscato
  • 1 glass of Sparkling White Grape Juice
  • 2 cups of Cranberry Juice
  • 2-3 plums, sliced for garnish
  • A handful of red grapes for garnish
  • A handful of fresh cranberries for garnish
  • ¼ cup of sugar for coating
  • Light corn syrup and extra sugar to rim the glass(optional)

This cocktail comes together pretty quickly, but you’ll have to make it long before your party starts so that you can have time for chilling it properly. For making, simply mix the Moscato, grape juice and cranberry juice in a large pitcher. Then, place the pitcher in the fridge for at least two hours. Pour a thin layer of light corn syrup in a shallow dish while serving the cocktails. Add some sugar on a separate shallow dish. Dip the edge of each glass first into the corn syrup and then with sugar. Finally, it’s time to pour the cocktail into each glass.

Mint Julep

This is for those who wants a strong, malty character with delicate fresh fruit flavours that brings a unique combination of sweet and spicy notes.
