Party season is officially here! As Mumbai gears up for some wild nights, these gin-based cocktails are here to get the party started. We went around town looking for the best gin-based cocktails in town, and here is what we found!
Let The Fun Be-Gin: Have You Tried These Amazing Gin Cocktails?
Karvanda Bramble at The Bombay Canteen
Gordon’s gin, karvanda liqueur, plum, lime and salt dust come together in this beautiful concoction that has found a set of loyalists already! It’s a perfect drink for a summer afternoon, or that brunch date, or girls' night, if you're just DONE with whisky, vodka and beer. We LOVE the addition of the karvanda liqueur in this one.
Enjoy it with: Cripsy Pork Chicharones, Saag Galouti Kabab, and Arbi Tuk
Atelier at Toast & Tonic
T&T has conjured up a lovely drink with gin, thyme and grapefruit tonic, which is served with Rose Petal-Cucumber ice. This is a drink that's refreshing, light and obviously, delicious!
Enjoy it with: The Pierogi, the Juniper Cured Salmon on Toast, and the T&T Shrimp Tempura
Japanese Dunkel at 145 The Mill
Now, this drink is a giant crossover that spans across continents... We'll explain why - this one's got Japanese Yuzu, German Dunkel, spiked with gin, and a lovely elderflower cordial. The Japanese Dunkel is served in a beer mug! If one cocktail doesn't get you buzzed, definitely get the Gin Kane (INR 329)
Enjoy it with: The Animal-Style Fries (INR 393), The Legendary Makhni Platter (INR 395), and 145's Signature Cheesecake (INR 295)
Elderflower Smash at The Clearing House
The refreshing flavours of gin, elderflower, orange juice and mint come together in this fruity cocktail. The flavours are subtle and sweet and invigorating to say the least. Definitely a must-try on your next night out here!

Negroni Sour at Slink & Bardot
This one’s a hot-seller, and why not! An indulgent cocktail, the Negroni Sour is a gin-based cocktail that is a combination of Beefeater gin, Martini Rosso, Campari, egg whites and lime. One sip, and you’ll be asking for another round all night!
