What: Size zero fancy cupcakes from Sugar Rush, Altamount Road. To order, call 9833498943, Rs. 240 for a dozen.
Why: The retro cakes are back and this time they're haute, skinny and for adults. Sugar Rush bakes childhood-meets-chic, chocolate-chip-peanut-butter goodness into bite-size cups, and tops them with pink icing, chocolate frosting, fruit, rainbow sprinkles and pretty much whatever else your heart desires. Sweet!
When: When you want to spread out the guilt.

What: Alaska shot, Olive Bar and Kitchen, Mahalaxmi Racecourse/Bandra, Rs. 600; and Tulleeho Cocktail Gurukul, Saturday, January 17, VITS, Andheri, Rs 1,000.
Why: When the deep red glacier floated over a cool, clear, vodka sea - it was love at first night. And its sweet, icy kiss sealed the deal.
When: Well worth a trip to the Mediterranean eatery, and also an easy home-fix: just blend ice, lychee syrup and vodka, and pour into a shot glass. Add a thin layer of crushed ice, and top off with a dash of strawberry syrup.
