If you thought our cuisine was diverse, then you'll be as surprised with ouR drinking habits.
Whether we ‘put one small’ or grab a tall, be rest assured that Indian drinking habits are just as curious as cuisine fixations.
That’s why you’ll find that fellow who drinks two beers everyday with one plate of peanut masala with half a lime sprinkled on top, or the other macchi who insists on having her 60 of Rum and Coke, with some pickle for ‘touchings.’
Celebrating the delightfully unique drinking culture of the south, are our quirky TPR Cocktails. It’s everything traditional, but with a twist.
This one’s easily a classic—it’s got rum AND coffee! Clearly, we don’t use the term hyper lightly around here. And of course, the monk part of it is a nod to every Bangalorean's staple drink growing up.
It’s kind of like one of those things where we decided to put two things everyone loves together, and then make it taste awesome. Happiness mixed with happiness, if you will. (See? It's already making us a bit silly.)
But, rum and coffee (and happiness) isn’t all that’s there to this drink.
While generous amounts of Dark Rum and Espresso do form the oh-so-solid base of this cocktail, there’s also a splash of coconut syrup and a pinch of cinnamon powder.
Why, you ask? Well, why not?!
The coconut adds a unique tropical flavour to the whole drink, and the cinnamon, a little extra zing. (As if this drink needed any more, but you know us right?!)
So, that’s relaxing + energising + tropical coolth + spicy zing = most awesome amped up cocktail ever.
The flavours are all individually strong ones, and you're probably thinking this whole thing sounds a bit overpowering. But you'd be surprised at how these unlikely combos balance each other out perfectly.
Our Bartender Says
“It’s kind of been an elixir for the working bunch especially. It’s got all the benefits of coffee plus rum, which makes it fun also, and gives them this giddy giddy feeling of being alert but also relaxed.
It’s not official or anything, but from the stories exchanged at the bar, it’s played quite the role in enhancing their work performance. And it's worked wonders for both people who love coffee and people who love rum. Which is everyone in this world, am I right?! ”
