Rainy season is probably the most awaited as the weather becomes cool but not cold. The drizzling rain-drops make the surroundings romantic giving you the optimum climate to have some fun. Jaipur is always beautiful but it takes a new form in monsoon. The holy Saawan month falls during the season and the whole city gets colorful.

1.Trekking to the Hills

Pink city turns into green city during monsoons. All the hills get covered in green coat of plants. This is the best season to walk up and down these hills. Trekking around Samode, Amer, Galtaji and many more locations is a cathartic experience when there is so much beauty to lay your eyes upon. Even if you are not much of a walker, you can go for small strolls to freshen up in the cool breeze.

Besides roaming around in the greenery, you can admire the beauty of palatial monuments like Amber fort, Nahargarh fort and Jaigarh fort. After a tiring trek, simply rent a Segway scooter and drive throughout these grand structures for a brush with history.

2.Night Tourism

3.Shop for Leheriya

Having your favorite cocktail but are you having it in the right glass?

23 08 2016

Through old times, cocktail has been served in a particular manner. There is always a right glass for the right drink but with changing times of mix and match, this trend has also changed.

Come let us help you identify some of the glasses that are commonly used although now alternatives come in various shapes and sizes.

1. Wine glass As the name suggests, these glasses are typically made to serve wine in them. The long stick at the end is what one is supposed to hold so that the drink doesn’t warm up quickly. This holds a typical volume of 250 to 300 ml / 8.8 to 10.6 Oz.

2. Margarita glass– This Margarita bearer is also called as a “cocktail glass”. These glasses carry a volume of 250 ml / 8.8 Oz which are again to be held from the stick.

Cosmopolitan

 

3. Champagne flute– The slim elegant glass holds a capacity of 200 ml / 7.0 Oz of best quality champagne. The tall shape of the glass prevents the drink from going flat too fast. Also, it prevents the bubbles from rising upwards giving the best visual effects.

4. Martini glass– Also called as “Martini Saucer” makes the drink look royal. Martini can be poured in it easily due to the broad opening but this may even cause you problem on the dance floor where it can easily spill out. It can carry a volume of 250ml / 8.8 Oz.

Blue Lagoon

 

5. Shot glass The drinks in these glasses are supposed to be swallowed in a single gulp. They are small glasses with a little capacity of 25 ml or 50 ml / 0.9 to 1.8 Oz.

6. Brandy snifter– Known by other names also such as goblet or balloon due to the shape of the glass. Fine quality brandy is poured in to the widest area of the glass. Large surface area allows the aroma of the contents to rise and be concentrated at the narrow mouth for maximum effect. It can carry a volume of 350 ml / 12.3 Oz.
