Who was Nostradamus? He was a French apothecary and reputed seer who published collections of prophecies way back in the 15th century that have since become famous worldwide. And today of Fortune like a modern day apothecary, they have successfully created an amalgamation of the finest cocktails for you to try. Try a B 52 (layered to shoot your punch drunk with coffee liqueur, Baileys Irish Cream and Cointreau). The three liquored cocktail will perhaps be fifty two times more potent…that is a definite prediction. Or perhaps the Big Bamboo which is a fortune shooter. Don’t get this wrong. Not a predicted fortune shooter but the Fortune Regina Shooter – it’s a signature drink with white and dark rum, triple sec, pineapple and orange juice.
If cocktails are not what is needed to pep those spirits remember that the bar boasts of a fine array of brands of scotch, wines, cognacs and liqueurs from across the world. And its not only the spirits that go global; the chefs have worked on mouth watering, traditional flavours of snacks, Try the Falafel with Tahina (a Mediterranean preparation of broad beans, fresh herbs served with Tahina). Or perhaps the spiced Paan Ki Khumb (an innovative kebab of mushrooms wrapped in betel leaves and fried to crisp) or a Seekh Bhopali (Lamb mince mixed with ginger, green chilly and fresh coriander). Get invigorated with martinis and cocktails. You won’t need to seer to prophesize what will happen after a visit to this place.
