Belvedere Cocktail Masterclass at Wink

We were recently invited to a cocktail masterclass hosted by Belvedere Vodka alongwith their Global Brand Ambassador and bartender Allison Dedianko at Wink, Taj Vivanta.

The masterclass was a great experience where Allison alongwith the inhouse bartender at Wink taught us how to make 6 exotic cocktails, inspired by Indian ingredients. After the interactive session, participants were allowed to step into the bar and prepare their favourite cocktail out of the six concoctions. Our favourite was the Saffron and Cinnamon Daisy and we prepared the same!
