March 9, 2022: 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 the use of natural elements such as fruits and vegetables.
The Solar System has formed 4.6 billion years ago from the gravitational collapse of a giant interstellar molecular cloud; Solar energy is irreplaceable for the survival of human beings. The newly created beverage menu 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.
The expansion of cocktails in new and unexpected directions is one of the most exciting developments in the world of mixology. There is a growing trend to incorporate fruits and vegetables into both drinks and spirits in new and unusual ways and combinations. A well-placed garnish while enhancing flavour, aroma, health factor and visual appeal can elevate the cocktail from a refreshing drink to a culinary and gourmet experience. The New Cocktail menu uses a distinct variation of fermented fruit & vegetables in its garnishes.
