Learning the art of mixology

KATHMADNU: Drinking cocktail and mocktail is always fun. Even interesting is to prepare them — cocktail resembling sunset, mocktail with fizz or bubbles, drinks with funny names, cocktail with a mystery and a history, along with layered, stirred, and shaken cocktails/mocktails. And a mixology session 'Cocktails and Dream' taught varied aspects of preparing cocktails/mocktails to the BHM VIth Semester students of Shree Ritz Hospitality Management College, Balkumari.

The five-day mixology session that started on December 28, 2015 to January 3 was conducted by Raj Kumar DC, CEO/Beverage Consultant of Cocktails and Dreams Nepal. On the first day of the session, DC gave theoretical information about different types of beverages and mixology techniques. From the second day onwards, the students enjoyed knowing the art and craft of mixing beverages practically.

He taught students the ways to create incredible cocktails, serve them, and enhance drinking experience.

The students learned to make 50 different cocktails and mocktails during the session. They were also certified on the last day amidst an event.

Meanwhile, two students — Monika Sharma and Prayas Guragain — among 75 participating students received scholarship for two months diploma course in Bartending at Cocktails and Dreams Nepal.
