Hakkasan Mumbai, India

Hakkasan Mumbai is one of the most popular dining destinations in the city. It has a signature style of dark stained English oak screens and latticing, with backlit blue glass that surrounds the contemporary restaurant. It has a long bar as well as an open kitchen and they serve great signature dishes and drinks.

My favorite cocktail is Bitter Fortune.

It is a martini style cocktail with fresh grapefruit juice, amaro and TANQUERAY™ gin.

40ml TANQUERAY™ NO. TEN
35ml Pink grapefruit juice

12.5ml Amaro
10ml Lime juice
10ml Sugar syrup
Grapefruit peel

Method:

Take a Cancun glass or martini glass and fill it with ice.

Take a cocktail shaker, pour in all the ingredients and fill it with ice cubes.

Close the shaker tight so that the cocktail does not spill.

Shake it hard and double strain it in a chilled Cancun or martini glass.

Garnish with grapefruit peel.
