So, during my birthday week, I ended up doing dinner, having people over, going to a party, going for a wine & cheese pairing event AND i got invited to a masterclass on #espressology – at the launch of @smirnoffindia’s new coffee flavored vodka. This — The OrgaCinn — is what we created with OJ, cream, cinnamon, hazelnut liqueur, simple syrup, and, of course, espresso vodka. It wasn’t half bad.
the zing thing
no, not the band, but the drink! While it’s not available anywhere except in our childhood memories, here’s a restaurant in Matunga that hasn’t updated its board in years. Perhaps this should have been a tip off about the quality. There wasn’t much attention to details. We had really unhappy utthapams. But a Gold Spot would really have hit the sweet spot … Sigh. I remember drinking it more because there were Jungle Book characters under the bottle cap but every memory of it is pleasant. As they said, “The taste goes to your smile.”
