Ever wondered why alcohol has a weird effect on people? That’s because it is a magic potion of course. Think about it. After being within close vicinity, it can make man do anything. He becomes smarter, faster, stronger, more resilient. It’s like a potion that unlocks superpowers that have remained hidden underneath that mysterious exterior. Like chicken pox, alcohol also has properties that can make you resistant (not to pox, silly) to aging. That’s what they say, the drunk ones. Also, it heightens your senses and makes you feel like Damon out of Vampire diaries with a greater sense of euphoria or heavy grief, extreme frustration, a drive of frenzy, utter anxiety… You get the point. So the idea is a cocktail can turn you into a superhero or a supernatural species. Why be a king when you can be a kingmaker right? Unfortunately, only the lucky few in the world get that honor.

HIGH Ultra lounge hosted an unforgettable evening where Guru turned ten world leaders into cocktails for the HIGH on Power – cocktail festival. It was either a test of our sobriety or sense of humor. I’m sure we would have failed either ways because they added Sandeep Rao to the mix, as if we didn’t have enough to build up euphoria and push us off the edge!
What they really did was, pick ten world leaders. Take their personalities. Translate each of those personality into a cocktail. Simple. So when you taste those cocktails, you will feel a ringing similarities to those eminent characters. How amazing is that? Oh I wish they’d construct a cocktail for moi!
I had a few favorites among the ten. If you’d to try all of them, I suggest you visit HIGH before August 6th for the festival.
From Russia with Love
Just Putin some drinks
Obviously this one is Vladimir Putin, who is supposed to be a witty and chivalrous macho man. Hmm, who’d have guessed. As a drink, he was disguised as a mildly aromatic, soothing and fresh cocktail made of Frozen snow, vodka and some elderflower. How gallant is that!
For some fun at the Oval Office
You could probably imagine Bill Clinton sitting with this drink at the Oval Office back in his days as he went by his daily affairs. He was known to be quite enthusiastic and so is this glass of Monica Blewinsky with a mix of caramel, honey, Campari topped with roasted nuts and Jim Bean.
The new iron lady!
She’s the world’s most powerful woman, and she’s not only here for women but also woman. If you are confused then maybe you had too much of Merkel Waters, I mean, Merky Waters. It shows she is tough, and that she is a feminist with a bit of Jägermeister, almond, pineapple and orange bitters. Be careful with your glass of Merkel.
Uncle Sam wants you to DRINK
I keep saying that the POTUS could have won over Hitler’s heart if he were alive today. Obama’s calm and positive attitude, can dissipate a Tsunami in a minute if needed. How we wish we could be that charming! The closest we can get to him is through Obamatic Thunder, which is essentially him in a glass. This version of him is made of Passion fruit, lime, ginger juice, beer and Jim Bean.
Guess This Personality
Let’s see if you have the magical abilities of guessing who this drink is based on the look of it.
Head to HIGH Ultra Lounge right away for a taste of the chosen 10 in a glass at the HIGH on Power Cocktail Festival.
Hurry up, the power lasts only until 6th August. For reservations call 080 4567 4567
