Travel+Leisure India & South Asia, in association with Le Meridien New Delhi, hosted the Cocktail Rendezvous—a Masterclass in Vodka Cocktails—at the hotel’s elite Nero bar on August 3. Four bartenders took the spotlight as they demonstrated signature cocktail recipes to a select gathering of well-heeled travellers.

 

The dark, elegant interior at Nero was the perfect setting for a Friday evening as four signature cocktails—Russian Love, Cape Codder, Cosmopolitan, Café Vangila—were shaken and stirred for an exclusive crowd of discerning travellers. Guests at the event networked over cocktails and canapes, with sumptuous food stations such as the Bruschetta Bar, the Cheese Station, and the Kha-ja Chowk fuelling conversations on food and travel discoveries. During the Masterclass, guests enjoyed some fun cocktail trivia on the origin of the ingredients and liquor used in the cocktails and won prizes too!

The intimate cocktail session was followed by dinner at the hotel’s signature Indian fine dining restaurant, eau de Monsoon, a perfect conclusion to a wonderful evening.

Here’s a sneak peek from the masterclass.
