As the day comes to an end, a drink and some great food to nibble on is just what you need sometimes. Sundowners, a very popular urban trend of after-work drinks, has now been taken up a few notches by the new sundowner menu at Polo Lounge at the Hyatt Regency, Delhi. We bring you all the deets on the new drinks & food on offer. Read on!
The moment you enter Polo Lounge, you can’t help but be captivated by the very colonial influence in the decor elements, complete with a fireplace and some book shelves. Polo themed artefacts and pictures can be found sprinkled all around. Voted as the best Bar in Delhi, this place is surely not to be missed by those who love some rare whiskies, cognacs, single malts, etc.
The new menu boasts of an exciting mix of cocktails made with some very interesting liquors. Be prepared to see vanilla infused white rum, jalapeno infused tequila and the likes in your drinks.
Insas, a drink packed with Vanilla infused white rum, saffron tincture, pineapple juice and nutmeg was what kick started our evening. The vanilla infused rum added a very dessert-like fragrance to the drink, this one is sure to be a hit amongst all!
One of everyone’s favorite drinks on the menu was Lick up Jalapeno Margarita with Jalapeno infused tequila and orange liqueur, and black pepper dust sprinkled on the outside, to be licked before every sip. The kick of spice with the black pepper and jalapeno is just something you’d need after a tiring day at work. Of course, only if you love some spice in your life 😉
Very Berry, with Blueberry infused vodka, blue curacao and cranberry juice which added a hint of sweetness from the berries, would make for an ideal drink for the ladies out there. Was one of my favorites too!
Some amazing finger food to go with your drinks is always welcome. Take your pick from the menu on offer, which includes some crispy veg spring rolls with a tangy sweet chili dip, mushroom or chicken croquettes with honey aioli, or the nachos with guacamole, sour cream and fresh tangy salsa.
Albondigas, the lamb meatballs in a spicy tomato sauce, and the sea food fritter with a mix of prawns and fish with garlic mustard dip are not to be missed!
With more cocktails on offer, like the Exotic Delight with Vodka, lychee juice, candied rose petal and fennel dust on the outside, the evening conversations around food and drinks had just begun!
Old Steel, with the Vodka, campari, cranberry juice and bitter was something you’d like for a slightly heady evening.
Monsoon, made with Gin, coconut liqueur, ginger, lavender is for those who like a good kick out of their drinks. The ginger was a little overpowering here. But look at that ombre lavender color! Who wouldn’t want to pick up this one 😉
More food followed from the kitchens of Chef Abhishek Singh followed by what was an interesting conversation about the hidden gems of food in Delhi. Succulent Kebabs, shikanja (chicken in very light spices) and the likes are just what you need for an awesomesauce evening!
Head over to Polo Lounge at Hyatt Regency, Delhi for some amazing drinks and food at sun down! Highly recommended!
