You’re already planning a sangeet, cocktail or reception that’s creative and fun. And if the cool bar set-up you have planned is going to be the buzzing hub of the bash, why not say goodbye to long, stuffy buffet queues and formally plated munchies and embrace the small-plate, finger-food, inventive food pairings that are on-trend around the world? We have some suggestions that are guaranteed to have your guests say cheers!
Whiskey with Kebabs
It’s the Indian classic – succulent kebabs, fluffy naans and a shot of liquid gold. If you’re serving Johnnie Walker blends at your wedding, get the caterers to whip up mini-kebab-and-naan rolls – the combination of hot, bold flavours will impress all the whiskey-drinkers and it’ll be a hit on the rocks!
Martinis and Sushi
A dry martini, clean on the tongue will be perfectly complemented by the umami essence of a sushi platter. Whether you choose shrimp and salmon or avocado and tofu, guests can pick their favourite rolls as they sip on their martinis.
Manhattan with Crostini
Make your Manhattans with Johnnie Walker’s Black Label and send some couture crostinis around on a silver platter. Choose bold flavours again – mushroom and blue cheese on crisp, garlicky toast with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and add a chicken option for non-vegetarians.
Caprioska with Papri Chaat
Nothing says ‘party’ like the desi papri chaat. Now get those tastebuds tingling by pairing the fresh herb and zingy relish of the chaat with the crisp mint-infused Ciroc Caprioska. Guests will love the pairing and will be talking about your cool cross-cultural skills for days later.
Margaritas and Mini Tacos
You may want to dance the Mexican Hat when you see how perfect this combination is. They speak the same language – tequila-infused margaritas and crunchy, flavourful tacos. Send them up and down the bar with the margarita pitchers.
Paloma and Nachos
Tequila based cocktails and nachos are young, fun and a great way to get the party going! Whether your guests are doing Don Julio shots straight from the bottle or enjoying their cocktails at the bar, these tiny mouthfuls will keep the Paloma lovers grinning through the evening.
