Ever wondered what your favorite IPL players do when they are not on field? Ever thought if your favorite players would ever make their own drink? Well, some of the IPL players took a step of being mixologist and making their own unique signature cocktails for all their loving fans. In this blog, you can find the recipe to these signature cocktail's.


United Spirits Limited got celebrity bartender, Mr. Rohan Carvalho from Bar square and taught few bloggers the way our IPL players made their signature cocktail.
Rohan started the session by naming the drinks for us which were The Devils Dew, The Kings Way and The Royal Sweep.
