Sip story: A one-stop shop for all your smoothie needs — from detox drinks to chocolate overload to meals-in-a-bottle to ‘hangover warriors’

After making its presence felt in cities like Hyderabad, Bangalore, New Delhi, Pune, Vijayawada, Chennai and Indore, smoothie and juice lounge Drunken Monkey has arrived in Calcutta on Sarat Bose Road (not to be confused with resto-pub The Drunken Monkey in Kaikhali). 

The range of smoothies is extensive, with over 170 varieties to choose from. From hydrating smoothies and coffee concoctions to healthy meals in a bottle and detox drinks... the juice and smoothie lounge is well armed.
The idea behind the chain is to keep the smoothies free of any artificial flavours. “There is a huge craze for healthy juices, detox drinks and the like today, hence Drunken Monkey is an answer to this trend in the city and we have tried our best to keep something that suits every palate,” said Pallavi Sharma, owner of Sharma Foods, the Calcutta franchisee.

Call it a meal-in-a-bottle. Horlicks is blended with cornflakes, muesli, cashew nuts, almonds and a tinge of apple. #WholesomeGoodness
