Welcome to summer 2019!
Nagpur witnessed a slew of winter parties and the summer definitely looks very promising. This city sure knows how to throw some epic parties and we cannot agree more. Be it the exuberant people of Nagpur, their superlative fashion sense or their exquisite taste in food and drinks, this city never ceases to surprise us. Whether you are planning a girl’s luncheon or a soiree or an evening of cocktails and cheese, we’ll help you cruise through it so that you’re on the top of your game and also don’t miss out on fun trends.
We bring to you some really cool party drink trends for 2019.
- Color: PANTONE colour of 2019 is the Living Coral. Anything with a pop of coral coupled with whites and golds and you’ll have a party décor that is sure to create a buzz amongst your guests.Nagpur’s very own, Event and Décor planner, Vidhi Daga also suggests the use of peach and coral hues this summer. She loves using fresh flowers in her creations and peachy Plumerias, daisies and orange roses would make your summer only more fragrant and oh so stunning. You can take a leap and also centre your drinks menu on the color of the year.Go Coral! How fun is that!
- DIY Drink Bars: An open DIY drinks bar is a great way to show your friends and family just how much you love them. Let your guests create their own fancy drinks at the bar. This is such an amazing way to start fun conversations and your guests will love the whole vibe around the party.
- Seasonal Fruit based Cocktails: Since Nagpur is the orange capital of India, oranges galore in summers. Orange based cocktails are a super hit amongst everyone. Serve your guests a tall flute of Mimosa and they’ll not stop at one. Who would’ve thought of a cocktail featuring the modest sugarcane juice? Sandeep Patle, the ingenious bartender from Mocha, Nagpur says that, “it’s all about being experimental and sugarcane based cocktails are fast becoming a rage with people”. Another summer fruit we cannot miss is the sweet watermelon. Watermelon Sangria and Watermelon Pina Coladas are a refreshing and an interesting take on this green giant.You can find these cocktails making a splash on the menu of a lot of restaurants in Nagpur. Not many people know but watermelons are used to make wine too! And then we have the most popular cluster fruit-Yes!Let the grapes take the spotlight! Smash those red and green gushers into glasses spiked with some gin, rum and sparkling wine and Voila! You’re in vine heaven!
- Conscious Cocktails: Booze is not for everyone and that doesn’t mean pregnant women or people who don’t drink cannot have fun. We are seeing more and more conscious cocktails making a foray in the parties. These cocktails use healthy kombucha (sweetened black or green tea) and mix it with ginger and apple juice. This makes for a delectable cocktail for women who are preggers, designated drivers or who simply choose not to drink. A beautiful win-win for all.
Give your guests an experience that they’ll take home and not just the stupor!
