cocktail ideas to match New Year’s Eve vibes

As the saying goes, your location on New Year’s Eve frequently sets the tone for how you spend the following year. Why not get one of these fantastic New Year’s Eve drinks and enjoy it?

Whether you prefer vodka, tequila, or Champagne, we have a drink for you. It’s worth staying up late for our recipes for champagne with confetti, cranberry orange whisky sours, and Moscow Mule punch.

Pomegranate Martini

This recipe swaps out the cosmopolitan’s customary cranberry juice for pomegranate juice, making it more similar to a cosmopolitan than a regular martini.

The ideal beverage to serve at all your holiday events may be made by adding a sugar rim and a fresh rosemary spring.

Confetti Champagne

Looking for a festive drink to toast the occasion? Look nowhere else!

Due to its sparkling Pop Rocks rim, Confetti Champagne is about as spectacular as a cocktail can get.

Espresso Martini

In recent years, this popular ’90s throwback has gained appeal, and we are all the happier (and more caffeinated) for it.

We adore it as a pre-game beverage to keep us awake all night.

Prosecco Mint Julep

For a low-key Christmas cocktail hour, this festive sparkling beverage is ideal.

Dry sparkling wine adds a nice brightness and effervescence that complements the deep, caramelised tones of bourbon whisky, creating a sort of lightened-up mint julep.

Ginger-Cranberry Whiskey Sour

Punchy ginger flavour and tart cranberry juice are featured in this winter-appropriate whisky sour.

Although it just calls for a few simple ingredients, it is packed with powerful, vibrant flavours that go nicely with savoury holiday appetisers like baked brie and bacon-wrapped dates.


These peppermint-bark-inspired cocktails are shaken, not stirred, and have a handcrafted chocolate and peppermint rim.

To create them, combine white chocolate liqueur, vodka, peppermint schnapps, and heavy cream in a cocktail shaker with ice. Already, we have a festive mood!

Cranberry Orange Whiskey Sour

This is our go-to cocktail this holiday season since we yearn for cranberry drinks all season long.

The whisky and ginger beer give it warmth and spice, while the cranberry and citrus add freshness and tartness.

Chirstmas Punch

A large pitcher of punch is the best way to spice up a holiday gathering, and we adore this punch any day of the year (especially NYE).

Instead of using all the additional sugar that is used in many punch recipes, this Christmas punch gets its natural sweetness from apple cider. You may make a classy, festive punch for your next party by combining unsweetened cranberry juice with ginger beer’s spice and sharpness.

Brandy Alexander

At your upcoming dinner party, be sure to include this vintage dessert cocktail. Additionally, creating a Brandy Alexander couldn’t be simpler:

For a chic and opulent post-dinner cocktail, just combine brandy, dark crème de cacao, and heavy cream in equal proportions. Imagine it as a drunken, really upscale chocolate milkshake.

Lemon-Poppy Seed Drop

This upbeat cocktail strikes the ideal blend of citrus and nutty poppy seed flavour by combining our love of sweet-tart lemon drop martinis and spring-like lemon poppy seed muffins.

Want to add more flavour to your cocktail? It’s usually a good idea to flavour your simple syrup, and we think this cocktail would work nicely with a lavender, rosewater, or citrus peel version. Any leftovers taste fantastic in iced tea or cold brew!

Tiramisu White Russians

This White Russian with Italian flavouring falls in between a cocktail and a dessert.

Looking to upgrade for the holidays? This luscious beverage can be enhanced with a splash of orange bitters, a pinch of crushed cinnamon, or some freshly grated nutmeg.

Mother’s Day 2023: Easy speech and essay ideas to appreciate your mother

This year, Mother’s Day is being celebrated on May 14.



Mother's Day 2023

Preparations are in full swing as Mother’s Day is just a day ahead. However, every day is Mother’s Day because we cannot reciprocate the love they have showered on us and the sacrifices they have made for us.

But this occasion serves as an opportunity for children to make their mothers feel special. This year, Mother’s Day is being celebrated on May 14. Mother’s Day is another excuse to celebrate and strengthen this bond, foster emotional well-being and promote a culture of gratitude and respect for mothers and motherhood.

There are various ways to celebrate Mother’s Day but if you are planning to appreciate your mother with a cute speech and essay, then you have landed at the right place.

The celebration of Mother’s Day is one of the most popular occasions, especially for children. They celebrate their mother’s love on this day. A mother is the emblem of love and she displays all the affection she has for her children selflessly. She sacrifices all her needs without the intention of getting anything in return and wants just to get the needs of her children met. Without the presence of a mother, it would not have been possible to have our own life. You can find both Long and Short Mothers’ Day Speech in English below.

According to Leonardo DiCaprio, “My mother is a walking miracle.” This statement is very accurate. The birth of a mother occurs long before the birth of a child. Her time is not only spent growing her child but also educating him and helping him become a productive citizen of this nation. Mothers spend their lives fulfilling the dreams of others by giving up their own dreams. It is through her music that a child and a family can be filled with colors and melody.

The Bible says that God cannot be everywhere, and so he created mothers on Earth. In addition to being a symbol of love, mothers are also fierce warriors. In order for her child to be happy, she must overcome all obstacles. Anyone who has ever been born has been taught by her, had a friend, guide, philosopher, and even had a psychologist.

The word mother is indeed small but the feelings and importance are very big. We can never repay a mother for the sacrifices she makes, and it is impossible to do so in a lifetime. Interestingly, mothers are constant sources of energy and positivity for every child, and we should feel fortunate to be able to count on them as a source of support, forever.

Everyone celebrates Mother’s Day in quite a homely and individualistic manner. Everyone shares a different bond with their mother so the celebrations vary from one home to another. Some children buy her presents and make greeting cards for them.

This way, they display their love for her. Some make them breakfast or take them out for dinner. While some family members do not let her work the whole day and do the chores themselves.

In schools, Mother’s Day is celebrated with great enthusiasm. The schools host programs for the mothers where the kids perform for them. Moreover, the school authorities also encourage children to make something for their mothers as a token of their love.

Other than that, there are also many discounts and offers in different stores on the occasion of Mothers’ Day. In addition, there are special programs broadcasted on television in honour of mothers all over the world. These special telecasts are dedicated to mothers all over and talk about motherhood.

Therefore, we see that this day is an auspicious one that appreciates the one whose efforts often go unnoticed. A mother is said to be a creation of God as he couldn’t be present everywhere. It is no lie that they are the real models in their children’s lives. So, always remember to tell your mother how much you love them and take every day as an opportunity to express your love for her.

#BoycottStarbucks: Starbucks India gets backlash over its new LGBTQIA+ ad

The two-minute-long advertisement tells a story of a father who is not happy with her son’s decision to transition into a woman.



Starbucks India

Starbucks is one of the most popular coffee brands across the globe. The American multinational chain of coffeehouses is hogging headlines after Starbucks India launched its new campaign, It Starts With Your Name, with an advertisement on LGBTQIA+.

The two-minute-long advertisement tells a story of a father who is not happy with her son’s decision to transition into a woman. The ad starts with the parents sitting at a Starbucks outlet and waiting for their now-daughter Arpita.

The father had her name saved as Arpit and not Arpita while the mother asks him not to be mad at their daughter like the previous time. It seemed the father had trouble accepting his son with his female identity. However, the ad shows the father had moved on from his stubbornness and accepted gender fluidity. As his daughter arrives, he orders three cold coffees by her name Arpita and not Arpit.

Watch the viral video here:

Sharing the ad, Starbucks India wrote “Your name defines who you are, whether it’s Arpit or Arpita. At Starbucks, we love and accept you for who you are. Because being yourself means everything to us.”

Why #BoycottStarbucks is trending?

The ad has left the internet divided. While a section of social media is furious at Starbucks for touching such a sensitive matter in India, others appreciated their move to spread awareness among people. Moreover, the ad has led to a new trend on Twitter #BoycottStarbucks wherein users are bashing the coffee brand.

One user wrote Starbucks seems less like a coffee company and more like an arm of the American geopolitical empire that uses its brand image to propagate toxic ideas about identity and culture.

Another user wrote lashed at the brand for promoting the American agenda in India.
