Karan Johar’s very first restaurant Neuma was an instant hit for all Mumbaikars. Apart from its breathtaking interiors, the restaurant boasts of the most appetising menus with a little bit of everything from across the world. Their cocktail menu, too, does not stray far from perfection. The bar menu developed by Countertop India boasts a sustainability-led menu with a heavy focus on flavour and pairing. It experiments with both classic techniques and modern approach, bringing back forgotten ingredients. And so the menu only features signature crafted cocktails like Dinner with Francesca which is modelled after a dirty martini. Made with dry gin and vermouth, the cocktail has olive oil, Spanish olives and caper berries, giving it a salty and spicy flavour.

Kolkata’s favourite pub Someplace Else made its grand Mumbai debut earlier this year. Everything about the restaurant screams creativity and style right from the ambience to the food and of course the cocktail menu. The handcrafted concoctions have quite a mix of flavour and ingredients straying far from the regular boring blends. Signatures like the Pina De Feuge (Jose Cuervo Reposado, green chilli, coriander), Fig Mojito (Bacardi black, lime, fig infused rum, mint,) Expansionist (Bacardi white, Kahlua, cinnamon, chocolate syrup, crème) are all worth a try.
