Indianised Cocktails for your not so Indianised Sangeet

1. Chai Martini

This one is as quirky as its name–add a bit of Godiva, Vanilla Vodka, splash of cream and spiced syrup, shake it up and enjoy! Oh! And if you are thinking what exactly is the spiced syrup, then you need to know it is an amalgamation of brown sugar, pinch of cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ground ginger and nutmeg. We bet this one from A Beautiful Mess, is going to be one hell of a drink for all you yummers!

2. Mumma Nu Double Dose 

The next one in our list is a famous potent cocktail from the very well-known restaurant SodaBottleOpenerWala! It combines two of India's most popular winter alcohol choices - Old Monk rum and whisky. Yes, this can absolutely be one of the most comforting drinks for your winter wedding. With just a dash of sticky syrup and a bright marigold crown, this one can last on your taste buds for a long time!

3. Paani Ki Dukaan 

And, after all, your friends are exhausted dancing on floor, you can suggest to them to have this yum cocktail, and the benefits of having betel leaves too! Now don’t think that this drink might be boring, because you can always add some vodka and maraschino cherry to give it more wedding vibes.

4. Rose-ito 

The taste of this one is just as good it looks in its pink theme! It has a rose fragrance clubbed with lime juice, superfine sugar, fresh mint leaves, crushed ice, off-dry rosé and soda to attract all your guests at the wedding.

A masala spiced wine is just what you need for all your pals at the wedding. This one is also available at The Gurugram pub, Factory by Sutra, and has its own Indian twist to mulled wine. Just like Factory by Sutra, you can also serve this one in a kullhad to give it a full on desi feel.

6. Jamun-tini

How can you not have a drink that as appealing and tasty as this one? As Indian as its name sounds, it has a flavour of jamun, lime juice and sugar syrup, which will give you an explosion of fruits in your mouth.
