Statutory Warning: Cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption are injurious to health
After a not-so-successful run with Agent Vinod, Saif decides to cool his heels for a while. While in town, he goes to check out the new lounge bar, Eros, while his girlfriend is busy shooting for Madhur's pet project, Heroine. At Eros, Saif meets the famous mixologist Imtiaz Ali and his brother, Sajid Ali. They get talking and Imtiaz and Sajid shares with him the reciple for a new drink, which they have created, and they want him to try. They ask Homi Adajania, the bartender to make that drink for Saif, who is impressed. He asks for the name. Imtiaz and Sajid tell him, it's 'No S** On The Beach' (of course, we're Indians). Saif wants more of this and he is so excited, he wants to launch this cool drink. But, with a name like NSOTB, Saif knows, he will never get it past the Authorities (Censor Board). So, they decide on 'Cocktail' as an alternative title. He called me to taste this new drink, that he is planning to sample at theaters across the country.
I managed to grab the recipe at the bar. Here's the secret recipe for 'No S** On The Beach', also known as COCKTAIL:
(Statutory Warning: Cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption are injurious to health)
1 1/2 oz Saif Ali Khan
2 oz Deepika Padukone
2 oz Diana Penty
3/4 oz Boman Irani
1/2 oz Dimple Kapadia
Randeep Hooda slice for garnish
Happy Ending cherry for garnish
1. Pour all the ingredients into a film production with Comedy cubes, a few drops of Emotion and Indian values essence
2. Shake well with sexual overtones, a love triangle, jealousy, misunderstanding & feel goodness redemption
3. Strain into a couple of foreign locales - London and Cape Town (beach) and high street fashion
4. Stream into a multiplex screen
5. Garnish with popcorn, Coke and not to forget, Happy ending
Now, Imtiaz and Sajid are working on a new drink. They want to call it Virgin Padukonada. Will share the recipe with you, as soon as it's available.
P.S. Don't try making this drink at home, as the exotic ingredients are not easily available. Drink responsibly, once in theaters.
