Don’t Let Lockdown Diminish The Spirit of World Cocktail day

This summer make some amazing cocktails on World Cocktail Day

Life in lockdown is hectic, especially with space constraints, privacy constraints, work from home stress, and an overload of work in the home, here’s something you can celebrate— today, is World Cocktail Day!

We cannot help but reminisce the many occasions we have enjoyed our favourite cocktails amongst friends and family. With the on-going pandemic, virtual happy hours have replaced stepping out, but that does not mean one cannot be their own bartender and make themselves a cocktail in the comfort of their homes.

This World Cocktail Day, Diageo helps you set a new tradition, to learn the art of making a few your favourite cocktails at home. Taste summer in a sip with these delicious concoctions curated by Diageo’s finest Brand Ambassadors.

It was on 13th May 1806 when the word �cocktail’ was first officially defined, hence marking the day as World Cocktail Day. Since then cocktails have not only been a celebratory drink at parties but also a beautiful serve we like to order on the regular, when out with our friends. Cocktails have always known to pique the interest of many patrons looking to enjoy their choice of liquor combined with complementary additives.
