HOME, PVR’s Luxury Lounge and a social and live entertainment club at Ambience Mall Vasant Kunj has come out with exclusive drinks with a Solar System theme, an industry first approach in the food and beverage industry. Curated by the bar team of HOME, led by an award winning mixologist, these well-researched drinks with a scientific basis behind their meticulous creation, some of which, never tried in the fine dining space are healthy with use of natural elements such as fruits and vegetables.
The newly created beverage menu at HOME has been inspired by the energy of solar power along with fermentation, a preservation process that produces lactic acid. Fermentation is widely used for the production of alcoholic beverages through the process of distillation.
In the world of mixology, there is a growing trend to incorporate fruits and vegetables into both the drinks and the spirits in new and unusual ways and combinations. A well-placed garnish while enhancing flavour, aroma, the health factor and visual appeal can elevate the cocktail from a refreshing drink to a culinary and gourmet experience. The new cocktail menu at HOME uses a distinct variation of fermented fruit & vegetables in its garnishes.
“Our bar team has come up with creations that are captivating and flavorful, created with untameable passion and with meticulous care," said Mayank Tiwari, Executive Chef of the PVR Group, while introducing the new beverage menu at HOME.
