Women and drinking

While most conservative women in India, do not drink beer or any alcoholic beverage due to local traditions, in most european and temperate regions drinking is part of the daily diet, probably because temperatures are lower. Usually red and white wine is consumed with the food in Europe.

However increasingly young people are drinking beer in India, as they have plenty of money, and leading a westernized lifestyle can greatly improve career prospects, especially for women. Most of these young people go to a bar or a restaurant with a bar which will serve cocktails and alcoholic drinks

In india, usually single women do not go to a bar and restaurant alone, especially in small towns. However young people who lead a westernized lifestyle often go to the popular bars and nightclubs, which have a well stocked bar and a skilled bartender who has many years experience in mixing drinks.

Many of the nightclubs are charging an entry fee to regulate those visiting the place, and a few complimentary drinks are included in the entry fee. One of the problems visiting a place with a bar, is that while ordering drinks, the cocktails may contain some vodka, whisky, gin, and it is difficult for a teetollar to find out the composition of the cocktail in advance
