Delhi – a city full of drinkers – has innumerable bars, restaurants and ahaatas, serving up a choice selection of liquor. Our team at Little Black Book loves a good cocktail, and with so many options, from so many places, we realised someone needs to do the needful and put together a list of favourites.

So without further ado, we present out list of favourite cocktails from around the city. Let us know what yours are!

Cajun Margarita @ Piano Man Jazz Club

One of our favourites from Piano Man’s rich selection of cocktails, the Cajun Margarita is a jalapeno infused tequila, in a Cajun powder coated rim. With just the right amount of spiciness and flavour, it is a strong drink.

Screw Social Driver @ Social HKV

Screwdriver
