Absolut India: The Cocktail List

Word in the Mumbai and Delhi party circles is that this season’s trendiest drink is Absolut India. Yes, you read that right, Absolut Vodka, has released its India-specific bottle, and cocktail-guzzlers are rejoicing. With good reason, of course, the bottle packs in the goodness of mango and pepper notes, in addition to Absolut’s instantly recognisable character. This bitter-sweet mix is definitely what India needs to enjoy a refreshing drink during our tropical climes, wouldn’t you say?

Absolut Vodka is no stranger to limited editions. For over 30 years, they have been launching new additions to the vast collection of now, more than 800 works. In 2007, the brand started a campaign called ‘Cities’, featuring ABSOLUT BOSTON, ABSOLUT LOS ANGELES, etc. and today, I am happy to see that we have our very own ABSOLUT INDIA. UrbanEye was at the Absolut Vodka headquarters in Ahus, Sweden, recently, where we got a chance to catch a first glimpse of the bottle, featuring artwork by Mumbai-based artist Shaheen Baig. This artwork captures the rich Indian heritage along with its colourful streak and multi-cultural nature. A lot of my readers have been asking me to share some cocktail recipes using Absolut India, so during my sojourn at the Absolut headquarters in Sweden, I got some of the expert mixologists to share some of their exclusive recipes with me.
We’ve tried to keep them as simple as possible so that all of you can try them at home.
For your information, Absolut India is available at Duty Free shops in select Indian airports and will be launched across the country soon…
Enjoy with moderation!
