Holi, the festival of colors, is almost in the corner. It is that time of the year when all the friends and family members get together to enjoy colors after waiting a whole year for it. And, this year, it will be more dramatic especially spending almost an entire year in lockdown. Since the past year Holi was a mess for the pandemic, let’s make this year Holi a bit more colorful. And what can be a better way to celebrate Holi than enjoying a punch of colorful cocktails with a bunch of colors. So, before you wish your friends a “Happy Holi,” greet them with the following five exotic cocktail recipes and spice up your Holi event in a way your pals have never imagined of,
