The Pune Marriott’s Sushant Rege is a cricket buff. No prizes for guessing that his favourite team is the Pune Warriors India. “I wanted to make something special for the players to relax them post the match,” says the bar manager of Mi-A-Mi, who has created signature cocktails for his favourite Men in Blue.
Rege, whose favourite cricketer is Indian bowler Ashish Nehra, says that the cricketers tend to ‘eat healthy’, preferring to eat salads over fried, oily snacks.
Cricket enthusiasts can catch the matches live on the big screen, as they sip on the blue cocktails, created especially for the team.
