The holiday season, as it coincides with the cold and frizzy weather, calls upon the invasion of cocktails and warm drinks to soothe the chilly soul.

However, amid the ongoing night curfew in Maharashtra and new set of restrictions in other places amid the new strain of COVID-19, it is highly recommended, one stays at home to make the best of Christmas this year.

If you've outgrown the usual eggnog and rum, whip up these quicky and easy cocktail concoctions at home.
