There’s something about a good martini that makes everything better. We’re not sure whether it’s because it’s James Bond’s favourite drink or because it’s a delicious mix of two alcohols (gin and vermouth), but a martini after a long day always succeeds in perking us up. Traditional martinis are all well and good, but of late, there have been some fun spins on the classic drink that make them even better. Here are the best innovative martinis in Mumbai based on their combination of flavours, alcohol ratios and – of course – taste.
