Healthy cocktails? Actually they are much more than mere oxymorons. Talented mixologists who know their trade can bring in elements of wellness to uplift a cocktail onto the health pedestal. Jack G Son Hangshing from Layla, the awe-inspiring rooftop restaurant at The Den Bengaluru is one such mixologist who gives a healthy twist to a tequila cocktail by concocting the Charcoal Martini.
‘’This cocktail takes on a healthy avatar with the addition of activated charcoal. The ﬂavours from fresh fruits like pineapples, passion fruit and a zest of lime blends perfectly with the tequila gold and charcoal powder to feature a healthy frame to a Nachtmann cocktail glass. The good look is ﬁnely ﬁnished with rose petals and silver sugar pearl,’’ says Jack as he presents his futuristic drink.
