Cocktails in the Capital of Delhi
Collected by Allison Sodha, AFAR Local Expert
Like a highball glass, Delhi is overflowing with cocktails. Wine cellars, beer pubs, and vodka bars host a diverse crowd sampling innovative mixed drinks and micro brews. Feeling local? Join Delhiites for a Kingfisher Beer or Old Monk Rum at a neighborhood watering hole. Happy Hours often run until 8 pm or later, so take advantage of the 2-for-1 specials and order a mango-infused martini or summer brew with the aroma of basmati rice.
