I am not an alcohol person and do not like hard liquor, because of one plain and simple fact that I associate everything with taste and because my palate finds hard alcohol tasteless I usually settle for Cocktails or wine over hard liquor. I love them mostly because of that one major ingredient which makes the cocktail what it is.
I have compiled a list of my Favorite Cocktails in Delhi, not in any order of Ranking or preference, but purely on the basis that I loved them.
- Twins - The beverage is Tequila based and is superb whether you have a simple and refreshing with the subtle flavour of coconut milk and Mango pulp on a bed of ice with Kaffir lime leaves. Loved the combination of flavours that makes each beverage a completely refreshing and quenching experience. You get this at the newly opened Lutyens Cocktail House in Connaught Place.
