Holi brings with it a splash of colours, general bonhomie and cheer, food and of course, some good old bhang. As people resort to thandai and bhang to get tipsy this year, I thought why not try making some alcohol-infused desserts for holi that will add to the element of the fun booster.

As we are still stuck in this pandemic, my idea was to keep these recipes easy peasy so one can try these recipes at home and have something unique rather than our basic bhang and thandai recipes.

As the USP of Cocoa Cellar is alcohol-infused desserts so I thought what's a better occasion other than holi for people to try out my recipes and if not this they can call for our alcohol-infused desserts from Cocoa Cellar too.
