    Mumbai restaurant Light House Café is selling the recipe for a great house party on a budget with mini packets of DIY cocktail mixes, and we decided to make ourselves the guinea pigs for your sake. #sacrifice

    What Makes It Awesome

    Don’t we all know what’s it’s like when after a rather grueling day, we want to treat ourselves with a glass of sangria while curling up with a book in bed, but don’t want to chop up the fruits? Or when a bunch of friends suddenly decide that it’s at our house that the party is happening tonight, though we’re in no mood to play willing bartender?

    For times like those, these cocktail mixes seem like a great idea. Intrigued and always ready to experiment. 

    We logged on to their website and were welcomes by a bunch of cocktail mixes including Mojito mix, basil martini mix, margarita mix, cocktail Indiana mix and many more. So, once you've got the mix, you just have to add alcohol and there you go! Your bar-style cocktail is ready. 

    So, while our order was on the way, we did our bit. We got ready the one thing we had to, our pal, Al(cohol).

    Delivery arrived in close to 50 minutes, and we really liked what we saw. The mixes came cold, packed in big, attractive, golden plastic bags and after saying “ooh! shiny” we continued with the excitement. On opening, each packet had the necessary ingredients for a cocktail – a liquid mix, and if required for a particular recipe, other ingredients too. In the case of the mojito, we were given the mojito mix, sliced lemon and a mini pouch of mint. The herbed beer included a blended mix of apple, ginger and cinnamon.

    All we had to do was pour the liquid into a glass, top it off with some alcohol, and in the case of the mojito and daiquiri, add some soda.

    It’s hard to break it to you but we’re considering never waiting at a bar again waiting for a bartender to give us our overpriced cocktail: the mixes tasted fantastic.

    All the cocktails tasted just as they should – like a party in a glass. More than anything, the herbed beer came as a surprise and emerged the winner of the four drinks. The ginger made all the difference. Also, at the price and convenience {and the cute packaging} they come at, we are (shamelessly) thinking of making this part of workday rituals.

    Price: Between INR 60 and INR 99. Cost-effective, isn't is? 

    Pro-Tip

    Well, if you wanna go all out and make your house party an amazing one, they're happy to send across a team of bartenders as well.
