Sex on Chow­patty (COCK­TAIL)

DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

Shatbhi Basu was work­ing at J49, a lounge bar on Juhu Beach, the pro­fes­sional mixol­o­gist wanted to give a ‘Bam­baiya’ twist to the cock­tail ‘Sex on the Beach’. “I thought it ap­pro­pri­ate to style a twisted ver­sion of the orig­i­nal in hon­our of the count­less trysts on our famed beach,” says Basu who was urged by some stu­dents to give the same hon­our to the beach in South Mum­bai and thus ‘Sex on Chow­patty’ was cre­ated. While both the ‘in­spired’ drinks only used the im­agery of the orig­i­nal cock­tail rather than us­ing any Mum­bai spe­cific in­gre­di­ent, lo­cal in­gre­di­ents have man­aged to find a place in Basu’s other cre­ations. Mum­bai Iced Tea, made in the style of Long Is­land Iced Tea, has sug­ar­cane juice for cola while Madh Is­land Iced Tea has Mal­ibu (for the co­conut trees on the beach) in place of triple sec/Coin­treau.
