Zen Meaning

Zen Cocktail Curated in 2017 by PRATEEK GUSAIN. Zen means “Meditation”. The Inspiration for Zen cocktail came from my hometown KOTDWAR, Pauri Garhwal, Uttarakhand. Where I always found peace when I did meditation in the hills. Hills stations are famous for bringing peace in one’s life as it’s believed that mother nature heals everybody both physically & mentally. Zen cocktail symbolises peace and harmony. In my culture people prefer tea in day time and whisky at night, this cocktail is a mixture of my culture and is dedicated to my hometown.
