So the weather is finally warming up as is the race to the finals in World Cup Cricket! This weekend we have the India vs Zimbabwe match and instead of holding on to the edge of my seat and praying for India to win, I am looking forward to putting up my feet and enjoying the match sipping on a cocktail- thanks to team India having secured a comfortable seat in the Quarters.
Cosmopolitan is usually gender stereotyped into a woman’s drink- and unfairly so, just because it’s pink! Why can’t a man be allowed to enjoy his vodka with a little cranberry juice in peace? Talk about discrimination based on color! Anyhow, here’s my recipe for a Blue Cosmopolitan that celebrates the Indian Team and just like cricket, can hopefully be enjoyed by both men and women alike!
By the way, amidst all this cricket excitement, I came across a cool campaign that is being run by foodpanda.in in order to bring 1.4 million kids a mid-meal for a school year . I think it’s a great initiative and I wish them all the success! I thought I should share it with you all, in case you would like to participate and spread the cheer!
Here’s to Team India! Cheers!
