The cocktail called “Hot Blooded” gets its name from the ingredients it is made from. A bright, fiery crimson, this concoction mainly comprises of hot peppers and blood oranges (and whisky of course), making it a drink with a refreshing bite. The state you are left in after finishing one such drink may also have something to do with its name!
This heady cocktail gets its colour from the blood orange in it. If blood oranges seem new to you, you have to give them a shot. On the exterior they appear to be exactly like the regular oranges that you are accustomed to. But once you peel back the skin, the flesh inside is a deep dark shade or red. Be careful while extracting the juice from the blood oranges, and make sure you don’t spill any, because that will leave your kitchen looking like a crime scene.
Mix your own Hot Blooded cocktail
60 ml whisky

Shake and strain it into a rocks glass full of ice, making sure the jalapenos and seeds have been strained out.
Garnish with a thin slice of blood orange and add another sliced jalapeno if you want it extra spicy.
The Amber Moon cocktail has been around for a long time. Back in the 1800s, cracking raw eggs into alcohol was considered a ‘miner’s breakfast’. The burning sensation left after having whisky was soothed by drinking beer with raw eggs. In Amber Moon, eggs and whisky are combined and the whisky cocktail becomes a healthy drink that can cure a hangover.
We came across this whiskey cocktail and immediately thought about sharing it with you guys. The best part about it is its uniqueness. But what is it that makes it unique? It is the exotic combination of whiskey and crème de cassis that does.
The City of Dreams, with its eclectic mix of people, chawls, and high rises, the sea, churches, and pao bhaji, has an electric vibe to it. Countless faces that throng the pigeon holes of Bombay carry a myriad of untold stories within themselves. Someone somewhere said that the city never sleeps.
