Join Chef Preeti Mistry and learn how to make some Indian-inspired snacks and a cocktail to pair with them. You will learn to make the Desi Drop, a refreshing combo of Nimbu Pani (toasted cumin lemonade) and your favorite spirit, followed by Desi Jacks, Preeti's famous Indian inflected Cracker Jacks, and a spicy snack of peanuts and cheese that they grew up eating.
