Ten-Second Takeaway

There is no way I can make you feel better about all the craziness that comes with the Delhi monsoons, but Smoke House Deli sure can! They just added a selection of smoked cocktails to their menu, and we cannot stop loving them for it {they’re seriously that good}.

Put On A Show

Before we discuss just how amazing the cocktails are, you need to know that the process of making them is as beautiful. Ask for a demo maybe, and you would get to know exactly why we recommend it.

Tangerines, Berries And Tea

030816_SmokeHouseDeliCocktails1You can pick the Apple Wood – Tangerine Zest Smoked Berry {gin, mix berries, lime juice and orange bitters}, the Misty Apple Sour {green apple, lime & vodka} or the House Spiced Smoked Sangria {infusing flavours of orange juice and fresh fruits with red wine, port wine and brandy}, combining fruity and refreshing flavours with just the right amount of smokiness to deliver great taste.

Our favourites on the menu, though, were the Lime Zest Smoked Daiquiri, {a mix of Bacardi, pineapple, and lime juice,} Smoked Maple Kentucky {apple juice, maple syrup and whiskey}, Cherry Wood Smoked Rob Roy {vermouth, fresh orange and a dash of angostura bitters} and the Lapsang Souchong Smoked Margarita {a blend of tequila, egg whites, lime juice with Lapsang & Souchong infused syrups}.

While each drink held its own, it is the Lapsang Souchong that scores the most points, as it takes the Fujian black tea and uses its naturally smoky aroma to build a delightful cocktail; one that you will surely repeat.

So, We’re Thinking…

There is no real reason to say no to cocktails, specially when Smoke House Deli is mixing them for you. Though available for a limited time, these cocktails deserve some monsoon loving for their great balance and taste, along with all their smokiness.
