6 Crazy Cocktails In Delhi For A Happy Weekend

Your favourite cocktail is a name cast in stone – undeterred and unchangeable (unless someone offers you LIIT, never say no to LIIT). But that’s true only up to 5 (or maybe more if you’re a tank and super rich), because after five glasses of a heady concoction one can settle even for warm beer. Oh you know you will!

But here are 6 cocktails that are so unique and offbeat that you’ll remember them even the morning after!

A tangy mix of sweet lime, aam panna, cumin, salt and vodka, this cocktail will drown all childhood summer memories of your granny’s homemade aam pana in vodka. Sorry Paperboat.Monkey-Bar-Cocktail

The drink which sounds like a character out of a spy movie (except for the ‘Mule’) stays true to its name with generous amounts of vodka dancing around in the glass.deconstructed-moscow-mule

Sit back like a mafia in the dark setting of the place and sip on this smoking cocktail which is a blend of Vodka, cardamom, vanilla syrup, pineapple juice and lime juice and when garnished by vanilla air on top.Vault-Cafe-Cocktail

The pungent potion hits you as hard as a thunderclap. Shaken up with whickey, gin, apple juice, ice and a dash of orange, the cocktail is a 1920s classic.waikiki-beachcomber

You know a cocktail is ‘bottoms up’ good when even a non-whiskey drinker down it and goes for seconds. The cocktail is a delicious mix of clover and apple juice flavored with a smoked candy. This is why I have drinking problems.Lutyens-Cocktail
