A good cocktail is crafted from fresh ingredients that are made from scratch, unlike most sugary syrups. It’s important that it strikes a balance between the complex, distinct flavours of your favourite spirit without overpowering it. The Imli Sour at Monkey Bar checks all these boxes. The handcrafted drink is a mix of whisky with the flavour explosion of adrak-imli-saunth chutney, with a foamy egg-white topping. While whisky has featured in innumerable cocktail recipes and makes for a popular choice of base, this concoction stands out from the crowd. Many shy away from ordering this at the bar, but we promise you that it’s just the right amount of sour and is instantly refreshing.

What’s even better is that tamarind (imli) has been proven to contain beneficial nutrients, improve digestion and boost immunity. So, avoid the guilt-trip at your next cocktail hour.
