Winter Whispers in a Glass: Novotel Mumbai Juhu Beach’s Gadda Da Vida celebrates the first month of 2024 with Smoke-Infused Cocktails

As the brisk winter winds dance through the bustling streets of Mumbai, Novotel Mumbai Juhu Beach’s beloved beachfront lounge, Gadda Da Vida, is poised to unveil a celebration like no other. January 2024 marks the beginning of an extraordinary mixological voyage, a month dedicated to the mastery and allure of smoke-infused cocktails.

Winter, with its nippy air, sets the perfect stage for these smoke-infused creations. They are not mere drinks but a three-dimensional sensory escapade. Imagine sipping a story – a liquid narrative where the smoke’s warmth intertwines with the soul, where traditional cocktails assume new, complex avatars. It’s a theatrical spectacle in a glass – a visual drama coupled with tantalizing aromas and soul-warming flavors. 

Each cocktail on the menu tells a unique story, crafted like a chapter from an epicurean diary. The ‘Smoked Bloody Mary’ is a creative take on the classic, combining vodka-infused cucumber, tangy Bloody Mary mix, and wood chips for a subtle smokey essence, garnished with crisp celery. The ‘Smoked Whiskey Garden’ is a harmonious mix of apple-infused whiskey, rosemary syrup, honey, and apple cider, garnished with apple slices, reminiscent of a fresh garden.

For those with a penchant for spice, ‘Smoked and Spiced’ is a delightful blend of white rum infused with orange, cinnamon, and vanilla syrups, aromatic and almond bitters, finished with an orange peel garnish. ‘Fire on Ice’ masterfully balances warmth and refreshment, featuring whiskey infused with orange, apple juice, hazelnut syrup, and lime juice, adorned with an orange slice. The bold ‘Smoked Spiced Rum’ showcases Old Monk infused with ginger, honey, and lime juice, topped with ginger ale and garnished with a lime wheel, paying homage to the classic spiced rum.

Completing the menu, the ‘Lips Smacking’ cocktail is an elegant fusion of gin infused with cucumber and rosemary, grapefruit syrup, lime juice, and sugar syrup, crowned with ginger ale and a sprig of rosemary, creating a garden-fresh sensation with each sip.

Whether you’re a seasoned cocktail connoisseur or a curious explorer, this January, step into Gadda Da Vida to discover a world where cocktails are more than just beverages—they are a journey of flavors, an adventure for the palate, and a toast to the art of mixology.
