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.

Say Cheers to Red Wine and Good Health

Red Wine

Do you enjoy drinking Red Wine? Chill, it’s okay to admit. Most of us enjoy that amazingly good red drink. You will be happy to learn, if red wine is consumed in a moderate amount that means about a glass a day — has some awesome perks. Here, we bring to you awesome reasons to say cheers to Red wine and good health. Take a brief pause and know how a glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away.

Healthy Glowing Skin
Red wine and beauty, really? Yes, Wine is great for a healthy glowing skin. It contains antioxidants that protects the skin and prevents it from ageing.

Protects from Disease
Another benefit of this magical red wine is that-it reduces chances of having a stroke, heart attack, bowel, diabetes, aero-digestive cancer as well as other diseases too; it is also good for the brain and increases longevity. In short, it is no less than an elixir of life.

Gives Good Sleep
Not just this! Red wine can give you a peaceful sleep too due to the presence of a substance called melatonin that stimulates body clock. So consume a moderate amount of red wine – 50 to 100 ml before bedtime for a happy and peaceful sleep.

Controls Weight
Wine (seriously, wine!) can help keep your weight in check. It raises the body temperature (one reason some people get red cheeks when drinking), thus boosting calorie-burning and controlling weight.

Prevents Tooth Decay
But that’s not all, red wine also prevents gum disease, and even helps to treat it by reducing inflammation in the gums.

Over-consumption of any alcoholic drink is linked to health risks, and this holds true for red wine too. But having a glass of red wine along with a healthy diet and exercise can be a marker for a healthier lifestyle. 🙂 So limit your red wine consumption to no more than 24 ounces per day and enjoy healthy life.

9 05 2014

With the live screening of Rajasthan Royals vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, most ecstatic and enjoyable beer games, Forresta’s charm and the pink mood of Jaipur, #KFBeerUp once again rocked the evening for Jaipurites last night i.e 8th May 2014.

#KFBeerUp Jaipur Edition at The Forresta Kitchen & Bar

Before we start talking about the event, let’s start from the fact that why is it called ‘Beerup’. The name comes from ‘Tweetup’ which is an event where people who tweet come together to meet in person. A tweetup is a great opportunity to really connect with the people in your network and share just a little more than 140 characters at a time, and when this connection involves chilled beer, lots of fun and Forresta, then #KFBeerUp 2014 is what takes place !!

Talking of ‘experiential marketing’, this event set a great example. Being one of the best events in Jaipur, this event saw a new and fresh face of social and digital media marketing where an event infused brand enthusiasm among the twitter users and gave a kingly feel to the beer lovers.

Kingfisher Beer, a very popular brand known nationwide organized this event for the twitter community. A tweetup for beer lovers that limited to “Twitter Users” only! Kingfisher promises #KFBeerup in a city one month in advance and if you have registered you can drink as much Kingfisher Premium Beer and have as many delectable floating snacks as you want, which might even leave you floating at the end of the night 😉

In the backdrop of the adventurous forest type ambiance and lush green environs, the event kicked off with a lot of enthusiastic faces, foot-tapping music and head-rolling beer games 😀

The event was captured live and live tweets were done from the venue itself. The word started spreading and twitter world buzzed with hash tag “#Kfbeerup” as people tagged their friends on twitter to inform them about the #Kfbeerup.

The rocking event began with #KFBeerSipper where turn by turn, men and ladies participated and all they had to do was sip up the beer as fast as possible !!

By now everyone was almost buzzing in the trance of fun and beer, and the magic was multiplied by 100 times with the music being played by DJ Jasmeet.

We moved on to the next game ; #KFBeerSucker !! It was time to get a little naughty 😉 There was a team of boy and girl each and the girls had to help the boys suck up all the beer from the milk bottles, sounds a little funny right? But then what else were there for 😉 And just to inform you guys, Jaipur Jugheads broke all the records by finishing the race in 1.29 seconds and became the best sucker in India 😀

Then came #KFBeerPong where in the drunken state, two teams of boys had to chug and throw balls into the opponents’ beer glasses and whoever dropped more balls in the given time would win !! #JaipurJugheads surely did very well even though they did very well even though they did not break the record.

The ‘Good Friday’ is here to add extra goodness in your weekend. Do you like to travel for holidays? We believe everyone loves to travel. So when you have a long weekend of full- fledged three consecutive days, don’t kiss it goodbye by choosing to stay indoors and doing daily chores.

Plan a quick break to another town and give your mind a new thing to look at and contemplate. How about the city that has timeless appeal; Jaipur? Jaipur is an amazing option if you want to have fun with your family or a bunch of buddies. With its attractive monuments, beautifully laid out gardens and marvelous heritage sites, the pink city is a tourist’s paradise. Jantar Mantar Observatory, City Palace, Hawa Mahal, Jaigarh Fort, Amer fort, Central Museum, Nahargarh Fort, Kanak Vrindavan temple and garden and Central Museum are must – visit spots in the pink town.

If you want to do something adventurous, something off the beaten path, you can go for hot air balloon ride or elephant safari.

A trip to Jaipur is incomplete without exploring its colorful local markets that are every shopper’s delight. Bapu-Bazar is a treasure trove of typical Jaipuri stuff- Jaipuri Jutis, bedsheets, cushions, salwaar suits, bangles, craft & home décor items. To buy glittering gemstone jewellery or sarees in colorful bhandej, the crowded and famous ‘Johari Bazaar’ is the best bet.
