Cocktails are a mixed drink with distilled beverage added, shaken, stirred with either fruit or cream. It is mixed to such a perfection that the added flavours of the fruit get amalgamated in the base so beautifully that the stir up reaches the realms of our soul. In reality, a cocktail is a concoction of joy. Gurgaon has a whole lot of places where you would get the best of this mixed miracle but we list out the 6 places with the best cocktails in Gurgaon here.
The Drunken Botanist
The Drunken Botanist is themed around the namesake book, authored by Amy Stewart. If you’re a rookie for taste, innovation and hospitality, The Drunken Botanist, falls safely within the periphery of top class! My brownie points go, deservedly, towards the thought behind presentation and the concept. Their cocktails are a heady and exciting blend of liquor and herbs. Must try the Botanist Dates Julep, innovation in a glass, served in a vintage brass glass, Mysore Colada is Pina Colada meeting Coffee or their Sage, spiciness of Jalapenos, Cucumber juice mix, Vodka Smash!
Where: Unit no. 1B & 1C,UGF-C @ Bldg 10C, DLF Cyber Hub, Gurgaon
There is a charming cunningness in the cuisine at Molecule Air Bar, Gurgaon. Molecule is here to rescue you with its amazing menu, flaunting food from India, The Mediterranean, Italy, China etc. Their menu for Signature cocktails is equally tantalising. Be it the Konkantini, the cinnamon infused Smokey Whiskey Spice or the Lavender infused Naughty 30, they excel!

Cocktails & Dreams, Speakeasy
Cocktails and dreams, well, they do speakeasy. Something probably the originating idea behind this place. My love for cocktails has often lead me to this place and it’s warm, oozing with energy ambience always takes me in. The place is usually buzzing with activity, either a trivia night or a live band or some other participative activity. Simply choose your spirit, pick the flavour and watch the magician behind the bar conjure up a concoction so mild and beautiful you would be addicted. The favourites definitely are Lemon Drop Martini and Daiquiri.

We love their Bronx and Margarita but that should not stop you from experimenting the other flavours.
