Here is what our Guest Subhasini Gupta from MsSuSays has to say about the event - "We tried their perfectly curated Strawberry Margarita and Mojito featuring the summer’s fresh produce. Both were unique and tasted good. The mixologist used sugar syrup infused fresh ice-slush instead of ice cubes. This indeed gives the drink a good body and taste."

Pravin Menon, who is our active member and was also the guest has an amazing experience and here is what he says about it - "Lots of interesting cocktails and a dessert pizza by Sai Priya as part of the #plattershare gathering. Gorilla barfare is the new version of Jimi's cafe. The beauty of the cocktails is the fresh ingredients used instead of syrups. Fresh strawberries, watermelon, oranges, and cucumbers were used to make the margarita and a machine for fresh ice slush made it literally an icing on the top"
