April 7th, 2015: We spotted the West Indies cricketer, Chris Gayle flaunt his oh-so-amazing bar tending skills at The Irish House, Kolkata. The batsman who looked absolutely stylish in a black tee and a couple of gold chains could very well have been mistaken for a laid-back Jamaican singer.
With the IPL fever which kick-started on the same day, we grooved to the music while Gayle shook up three of the most popular in-house cocktails of the Irish pub – The Lagerini, Black Dog Punch and Mc Dowells No.1 Fizzkey. Best part of the evening, all the cocktails were up on sale on a first come basis and guess what? I won the Lagerini!
Cocktails that Gayle shook up:
1. The Lagerini
Contains Smirnoff Vodka, Beer with fresh fruits, splash of fresh draught, garnished with a twisted orange peel.
2. Black Dog Punch
Punch premix: Earl Grey Tea, Sugar Syrup, Sliced Orange, Sliced Lemon. Mix and keep aside for an hour.
Stir the premix gently with Black Dog Black Reserve.
3. Mc Dowells No.1 Fizzkey
Contains Whiskey, Soda, Coke, Lemon, Salt.
And as the IPL fever builds up, do not forget to step into the Irish House to catch your favourite team.
