Try these recipes one after the another, as and when you invite your friends at home, for any excuse like a holiday, a summer party, or just any general weekender fun. However, it is not recommended to drink Royal Crown straight, since it contains 40% alcohol by volume (ABV). So, there you go. Let your fun-time begin!
