If we want something to lift our spirits and get us into that party mood or when we want to forget the troubles of life & work and just enjoy the moment then only one thing pops up in our minds – BOOZE!

And you know what’s better than just a glass of alcohol? A cocktail!

Who wants to taste the bitter whiskey when you can just have a Tomahawk Punch or why would anyone gulp down that sharp tasting vodka when you can have a fancy glass of Cosmopolitan?

And did you know that you can have cocktails according to your mood or situation? So next time you find yourself on that fancy date, maybe instead of ordering the most expensive bottle of wine, you can have a Side Car. Or when you are sobbing about your breakup with your bros, instead of having that fattening beer you can just make yourself a glass of Simon Ho.

So, here is a list of your favourite alcohol made into cocktails, suitable for the kind of mood and situation you are in.

Rossini for that fancy girl’s night out –

Feeling fabulous? Then this drink is certainly the best you can have. It can also be a great option for your bachelorette party.
