Yup, that’s how I spent my Sunday afternoon! Tasting some of the most delicious India-inspired vodka cocktails I’ve ever had in my life at the Irish House in Kala Ghoda :) To be fair I’m a sucker for chaat masala so those were right up my alley! Special props to my co-judges Ali Dedianko and Shatbhi Basu for the awesome company and our lovely emcee/host Mitalee Gupte who kept everybody’s spirits up!

Now take a look at our Belvedere Rasa afternoon in pictures and watch a little video I did with Ali (Global Brand Ambassador for Belvedere Vodka) explaining the concept of Belvedere Rasa and sharing her love for India. I even got all three winning recipes for you special, so you can try making them at home! Enjoy. xoxo

PS. All three winning recipes were delish (and surprise surprise two of them were even my favorite color! *lol*) I particularly enjoyed the watermelon & goat cheese salad pairing with Zafar’s Belverinin and the lovely presentation of all three. Well done gentlemen!
