Pickled sips
If there is one memory associated with the languorous afternoons of an Indian summer, it has to be that of marinating raw mango slivers in a masala and sealing them off in a barni to be savoured a fortnight later as kairi ka achar. The tangy flavour can now be enjoyed in achari whiskey, featuring whiskey, ginger ale and mango pickle.
