You know you are up for some pampering when the person who has stirred a MARTINI for MADONNA doles out one for you. That’s what happened to me at the internationally celebrated and renowned Grey Goose’s BEYOND THE BAR program at the swanky new JW Marriot Hotel at Aerocity.
Acclaimed bartender Ondrej Pospichal on his maiden visit to India, is travelling across Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore to train top bartenders as a part of this program.
What makes Grey Goose’s BEYOND THE BAR PROGRAM unique is the fact that it is tailormade. For instance, Ondrej has especially designed a menu of 7 cocktails to suit the Indian palette. He has localized all the drinks keeping in mind the commonly used ingredients here such as saffron, dill and ginger.
And for you guys, I decided to feature the recipe of one such cocktail NEW DILLI. True to it’s name, this drink is an amalgamation of everything Indian. It is coming together of native tastes.
50 ml Grey Goose Vodka
5 cm stalk Fresh Dill
25 ml Apple Juice
25 ml Fresh Celery Juice
15 ml Fresh Lemon Juice
15 ml Sugar Syrup
2 dashes Celery Bitters
Shake them all up and serve in a Martini Glass. And wohoo you done!
So what are you waiting for? Grab the ingredients and make your very own NEW DILLI.
