Shaking It UP: Chapay Anand Kumar

Hyderabad’s cocktail scene is finally growing up, catering to the city’s thirst for different, taste and well-presented drinks. The credit for which goes to those men behind the bar, who spend hours in learning how to mix spirits, to give your drink the perfect taste. This month, we caught up with some mixologists from the city, in order to know them and their work a tad-bit better.
