Abooze yourself! Here’s the entire lowdown on Delhi Cocktail Week

The happiest time of the year is here. From 12th to 19th December, the skies will be starlit and the sights a bit blurry. Expect several euphoric moments and random spouts of dancing. The Delhi Cocktail Week is going to change the way you perceive cocktails (yes you, Miss. Long Island Iced Tea). From our very own mixologists masquerading as bartenders to international cocktail maestros, there’s going to be magic created on that humble bar counter.

So drop all your plans and head to one of the most spirited events of the year- at a bar near you!

Here are all the events that we are super excited about and you absolutely shouldn’t miss:
