Drinking a Jaipur Martini in The Pink City (and the Recipe)

Shaken not stirred- the pink Jaipure Martini at the Polo Bar

The Jaipure Martini is one of the signature cocktails of the Rambagh Palace — which is my home base while I’m in Jaipur for a few days. Jaipur is known as the “Pink City” so the cocktail is pale pink to signify it’s city of  origin. Rose petals also signify the beauty of the Palace, and are displayed everywhere on the property, and make the Palace smell wonderful.

If you have no plans to visit Rajasthan any time soon, here’s the recipe for the Jaipure martini– so you can sip a little of India in the comfort of your own home.

If you’re going to be visiting Jaipur, I’d highly recommend coming by the Rambagh Palace for a drink in the Polo Bar even if you’re not a guest here. It’s a lovely space with an interesting history.
