One Street Over
Aged Cold Brew Boulvadier with Jameson and Aperol at One Street Over
For One Street Over in Bandra, a new year means a new drinks menu that is extensive, to say the least. Midnight Martini (kahlua and cinnamon), Twisted Tea (whiskey, lemon, peach, sugar, black tea) and more are OSO’s take on classics. For those who prefer stronger tipples, the Strong and Punchy selection includes scotch based Banshee (brandy, house-made banana syrup and bitters), gin-based Jasmine (lemon, sugar, Triple sec and Aperol) and more. There are also light cocktails for those who prefer breezy mixes and fruity ones with lime, apple juice, cucumber added to the mix. The white-rum based Hemingway Diaquiri with grapefruit juice and maraschino liquer sounds no-fuss and could definitely be something we’d nurse after a tiring Wednesday at work.
