Be Careful What You’re Drinking For Happy Hour This Liquor Is Being Recalled!
Bangalore, INDIA: TO GO WITH 'INDIA-LIFESTYLE-BEVERAGES' In this picture taken 30 May 2007, bar waiters prepare a cocktail based on the Russian premium Vodka Eristoff during its launch by Bacardi Martini India Limited in Bangalore. At the Polo Club bar in Bangalore's swank Oberoi Hotel, the most popular drink these days is not a whisky highball, once the automatic choice of well-heeled Indians tipplers. For the young and rich, it's a toss-up between a margarita with tequila, Cointreau, lemon juice, sugar syrup and fresh fruit and a caprioshka with vodka, mint and lemon, white and brown sugar, served over crushed ice. Drinks based on premium vodka, white rum and tequila make up half the hotel's consumption of liquor, indicating a shift in preference to more expensive and mainly imported "white spirits" as the economy booms.
